Yes rescue boats were shot at in Houston. We were told to pack heavy and shoot back if fired upon. Actually quit sending boats to a certain neighborhood in Houston. My overall experience rescuing from my 1542 aluminum bateau with 40hp Yamaha Monday and Tuesday in Houston and yesterday in Port Arthur was extremely positive. Residents and local LE were appreciative that we were there. In all cases we were more informed than local LE about rescue needs and areas. Nothing but respect for everyone I met. Amazing response from civilians and pros alike. Louisiana was very well represented in the rescue effort. I guess I overdid it because now I'm laid up sick....

Way to go Gunner. I'm betting you didn't use the Triton for this foray.

Mr. Bill .... No.. But I did Use my 18' Custom Alum hull with my 90 HP.. Last Sat. and Sunday in ****erson.

Sun nite and All day Monday in Humble.. Tuesday until last night Vidor.. Can't Seem to wrap my head around the SHEER scope of this Disaster.

Cajun Navy made a HUGE Difference... I know I easily have over $600-750 out of pocket in 6 days. Replace cell phone that got wet $800. Lost all info on it... Gas, oil, clothes, food, water, external battery packs for iPhone, Spot lights, rain gear..... U get the picture... Sleeping in my truck. U get the picture..

People were very appreciative of our efforts. Etc.

It will be 15 yrs before Houston and area is back.. Did have a few pep's in Humble buy us some food once or twice.

Hell feel like setting up a "go fund me" acct... LOL

PS..

But If anyone as info on good rain gear suits, at really GOOD PRICES.. I feel we are going to NEED them some more before this Hurricane Season is over.

No better rain gear than breathable chest waders and a good jacket.

Guyss...

If you are so inclined... U Can Donate to the CAjun Navy thru Paypal.. They 're looking into seeing if they can reimburse some expenses ... My boat and motor took a BEATING....

Anyone know where U can get rearming co2 cartridges of inflatable life vests locally?? Not Academy, west marine... Etc... They don't carry the 33 gram cartridges.

As anyone gotten a water proof iphone case other than Lifeproof. I'm thinking about trying A pelican Marine Case for my replacement Iphone 7...

ANYONE got a 12 gal plastic tank they don't use?? Someone I rescues stepped on mine. It's leaking.. It will need replacing...

Lifeproof sucks. So do iPhones. I switched to Samsung S6 active and solved 2 problems. Phone don't suck, don't need a case. Completely waterproof.

A friend of mine and I were goi g to go to Beaumont this weekend with my boat. His son had been in Houston since Monday or so. Kept seeing conflicting reports on social media. We need more boats then we're turning boats around. Social media can be so good at times if people would stop posting fake crap. Especially during a time like that. You don't know what to believe. I wanted to go help but didn't want to waste time or money. We just got what we could for the people in the shelter hear in Alexandria. It breaks my heart. If any of y'all know a family in that shelter let me know and they can stay with us. Family pets are welcome too. John. 318 308 6709. It ain't the Marriot but it may feel a little more like home.

Dude.... quit begging. Seriously. U did a good deed. U knew ur **** was likely to get fugged up during the process. Ive helped a buddy that flooed, but any expense on my part i sucked it up. It almost sounds like u did this for a handout. U dont go rescuing ppl expecting reimbersments. Suck it up.

Go with the water proof phones. Crazy not to. I roll with the Samsung s7. Multiple swimming trips and no ill effects.

Thanks for all that helped in any way they could. How's the water levels in La?

My boat was in the shop so I went to Rockport where Harvey hit, spent a week there cutting downed trees and gutting sheetrock and insulation.
