The BP Effect – Captain Anderson’s Marina

The BP Effect series is brought to you by attorneys Reich & Binstock and Seeger Weiss LLP, which are helping businesses in Panama City Beach recover losses sustained directly and indirectly from the Deep Water Horizon oil spill. They can help your business too,

The BP Effect series, so far, has been a blast to write.  I’ve had the opportunity to meet tons of great people and get a real feel for how dynamic this incident was and how broad-ranging the effects have and continue to be.  This is the fourth article in the series and today I’m talking about a business that has had, arguably, one of the most literal direct impacts from the BP Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill.  Captain Anderson’s Marina’s business IS the water.  They have four sources of revenue, all of them are directly and indirectly tied to the Gulf of Mexico.  But first, I want to clear some stuff up.  And, rather than rant on here, click here to read about what caused this summer’s economic disaster in Panama City Beach.
