At messy Coconut Grove marinas, most boats intact — but some not so lucky

Coconut Grove’s marinas suffered their worst storm damage in 12 years after Hurricane Irma thrust Biscayne Bay waters well ashore.

The vast majority of boats tied to docks and piers survived. But there ugly exceptions: sailboats sent to the bottom at Dinner Key Marina, their masts jutting skyward from the sea. Luxury fishing yachts tossed onto piers and half submerged next to the Monty’s restaurant. A multi-ton cement dock lifted up onto the sea wall at the Grove Harbour Marina.
