I remember being anchored in that area just north of the bridge for over a week. Although it was 20 years ago, I can still see the bar tight rode off the bow at the peak of the current(we held under two anchors, Bahamian moored). It never seemed quite right to be there, especially on the turn that put the bridge down stream. I was glad to move on although we loved the area.I love St. Augustine. As a kid it was always our first stop after getting off the highway(way before I-95). But I can tell you two things from experience: 1) the city marina rips you, and 2) the current there is fierce.
Higgs,OK here is my take.... The boats captain is at fault he clearly took out the piling.
Well, sure... but if your Lincoln was a rust-bucket that was borderline illegal and everyone complained about it, and you put it where it was awkward for other cars to maneuver around... I don't think you're entitled to the price of a new Lincoln if someone hit it, and you run out and buy a moped.It is absolutely immaterial what the marina replaced the piling with or if they ever in fact do. The marina is entitled to whatever the complete cost would be to replace the piling and signage the boat destroyed.
If my new Lincoln is totaled by a guy running a red light he is obligated (or his insurance) to compensate me for a new Lincoln even if I replace it with a Yugo or decide walk from now on. The marina can act however it wants to the boat captain owes it a new piling.
