We have been told that ours was seen floating away, but haven't seen it in any of the pictures. It was grey,with a wooden deck,and had palm trees attached to it. It also had an air conditioner and a parrot by the front door.May have sunk down river.

There is a big unit w/ deck and pontoon attached next to pavillion, it was the last house on the West side. It was very sad to watch as we saw many sink right in their spot, or float out. As the water goes down I imagine that they will be visable.

Does anyone have any idea if there are boats floating anywhere other than down by the bridge? Has anyone seen a grey one with a wooden deck and a parrot by the front door? Can't find ours yet! Thanks!

Tammi....the boathouses that are over by the pavillion and the one in the park, are any of them grey with a wooden deck and an air conditioner on the side? Thanks!

Wish I could say our home is safe, but we could see it up onlong the railroad bridge in the paper today. Cant find my Dad's, maybe his his in the park. Glad to see most of the boats on the Ellis side survived.

There are 2 boathouses in pretty good condition just up river from the pavillion at the entrance to the park, and one for sure in the park in the parking lot area of the pool. There is also a pontoon in the playground by the splash pad.

Thank-you for your pictures, from them I was able to see my mom's boat and know that it is still floating, and in good condition. One of our neighbors boats is also visable, and in what seems like normal condition. You have put our minds at ease.
