Well, yes and no.  They didn't fix it, they mearly filled the entire hole back in, planes and all.  Before, the planes had silt support under them to support them but they and the rudder were being torqued as the water table moved  and the Batfish moved/rolled from heat (east to west sun and weather conditions) .  With the hole filled in, I am very sure they didn't pack back under the planes so now there is extra weight on top of the planes and no support below them.  It is par for the Batfish course.  Don't take the time to understand the problem before it is "fixed".......

Sounds like potential disaster zone before this time next year if the problems aren't addressed.

If they're lucky the spring rains will create a sinkhole and wash the sandy loam back under the planes.  Odds are low but..... idiot2
