Thats a pic of anaconda 2, washed onto the rocks during a cat 3 cyclone last week.

This next comment may get under the noses of a few.
Lots of boats were left on the anchor or on a mooring and now damaged/sunk. There are a few cyclone holes nearby and the owners only had about 10 days warning [meaning that within 24 hrs you can be in as safe a cyclone hole as possible].

It does not appear that much/any attempt was made to secure these yachts as best as possible. Apparently 2 were washed onto the breakwater whilst attempting to enter a marina during the worst of the cyclone.
