Bob Collins checks the battery on his old Boston Whaler as his girlfriend Melissa Figinski watches from the pier overlooking Saltpeter Creek. During Tropical Storm Isabel in 2003, Collins said he used this boat to rescue neighbors. Collins said he had no power for two weeks during that storm, and had to rebuild the pier. The water flooded his first floor.
