I wanted to share a couple of recent posts that I made to the Hawks Nest Owners Forum on HawksNest-Marathon.com
Post Number 1 – Like all others, I appreciate the very difficult job the Board is faced with and appreciate their efforts in this difficult situation. Having said that, do we have an overall written recovery plan in place? There have been numerous meetings held with engineers, contractors, etc. Has anyone put these into an overall timeline and action plan. If the insurance company wrote us a check tomorrow where would we start and how long would it take for all elements of the Hawks Nest to be restored? While we may not want to share the information on costs (due to insurance payment concerns), is there a problem sharing timelines, proposed vendors etc. with the owners? As we all plan our year around our weeks at the Hawks Nest, this information would be very valuable to all of us.
One last area that I think the owners would like to know about is the seawall. We have no insurance on the seawall and a minuscule reserve. Can the Board tell us what the engineers have reported on damage to the seawall (including boat dock, fishing piers, etc.) on repairing the seawall, estimates of that cost and the Board’s thoughts on how this expense would be funded? Again, given we have no insurance I would think there wouldn’t be a problem with the owners having this information.

Post Number 2 – In this post I suggested that it is time to get our law firm, Lobeck & Hanson (www.lobeckhanson.com) involved to advise us of our legal rights under our insurance contract and under Florida law. While George Keys may have been an excellent resource for us in the past, I have been very unimpressed with his performance to date on our current catastrophic insurance claim.
