The coconut has got through the cold and fungus damage and starting to really rebound. I think the trunk is fattening up a bit too. Photos are 2 months apart. I did the Sharpie test yesterday for kicks and it is putting out about 1" or slightly more in a 24 hour period.
The curve to the trunk was caused by 2 years of hurricanes (mostly Irma) that leaned it. It then grew up from the lean.
