Relief Effort for Hurricanes Irma and Maria are Still Ongoing in the Caribbean

News

The Caribbean region was devastated by hurricanes Irma and Maria in August of 2018. Many island nations within the Caribbean were severely impacted by this severe disaster. People lost their lives and billions of dollars in damages were done. This storm originated in the Republic of Cabo Verde islands. This is a small island nation that lies off the coast of Western Africa near the countries of Senegal, Guinea-Bissau and Mauretania.

The storm originated in this part of the world before it started to travel across the Atlantic Ocean toward the Caribbean Island region. The storm began on August 30, 2017 and lasted all the way to September 16, 2017. It struck the Caribbean area sometime around September 5. When the storm arrived in the Caribbean area it struck with a powerful force. It was rated a category 5 storm.

The island nations of Puerto Rico and Antigua and Barbuda received significant damage. Infrastructure was destroyed, thousands lost their homes and thousands were displaced. As of February 14, this U.S. territory is still without 20% of its power. Puerto Ricans were given billions in aid, but the money is not enough to get the country back on track.

People from all over the United States and in other parts of the world, continue to give aid to the territory. Keep in mind that Puerto Rico wasn’t the only island to be impacted by the storm. The small island nations within the Caribbean suffered as well. The nation suffered damage as well.

Much of the money that has been pouring in to these nations have been put to good use with helping the population to recover. Organizations like IGY Marinas under the leadership of Andrew Farkas have made efforts to help. Efforts are still being made by everyone around the world. The devastation to the nation of Puerto Rico was so strong that the recovery effort is expected to last for many years.

Marina Embraces Technology with New Boating App

News

Boaters that call any IGY Marina their home can now rejoice (and relax!) thanks to a new mobile app called Boatyard. This new partnership with Boatyard will certainly make life easier for the avid boater whether they are boating for pleasure or business.

Have Cellphone will Travel
Because our cell phones are already such an intrinsic part of our everyday lives, providing an app that helps boaters organize, save time and feel reassured while they are out on the water is ideal. We are already familiar with apps such as getting the weather, driving directions, tuning the guitar, playing games, so this app by Boatyard just makes sense.
No longer will a boater need to worry about how long he needs to idol or circle around until he can safely pull into a gas dock or a pump out. Scheduling these weekly or monthly duties will now be a simple task rather than a worrisome chore for some.
Granted, if you are an amateur boater, not skilled in docking as well as some, then this app is ideal. You can schedule your visit to the gas dock for early morning to avoid crowds or later in the day if you need to round up a few friends to help. It’s that simple.
For the Captain who needs his prop readjusted, wants the bottom of his boat painted or any other maintenance done by the IGY Marina, he can simply schedule it on the app.
The beauty of never having to leave the boat to accomplish his “to do” list is a real plus.

IGY Sets a Trend
IGY Marinas was founded by Andrew Farkas, who also serves as Chairman. While partnering with BoatYard is primarily helpful for the boater, it is also a realistic, beneficial and trend setting move for the marina as well. No more trying to pencil in a client, no more worries if an appointment wasn’t jotted down. It’s on the app. With technology constantly advancing forward, the Boatyard app is the way to go. Boats designed today are designed with advanced tech options, streamlined interiors and sexy cockpit seating with barbeque grills built right in. Boatyard has finally caught on and IGY is about to lead the way with the technology all boaters deserve and need for a practical, safe and fun boating experience for their clients. Bravo to IGY Marinas for setting the standard once again.
