Good luck.... Plan for the worst... Let us know how bad it really is as I don't know what to believe with the media.

Now I`m aimin' for heaven
But probably wind up down in hell
Where upon this alter I will hang my guilt ridden head
But it`s time I`ll take before I begin

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Has anyone heard any reports from those places that have already passed the strike time?

Past one hour ago in Los Angeles. Did not notice any change here (tide is at -1.2, pretty low)

Update: at 1400 local, almost 1:40 past predicted first landing, we have had several .75M changes in water level inside the Long Beach, CA Shoreline Marina. It is like a very fast tide change, or a very slow wave... It must be photogenic because there is a contest above with the news choppers and the CG vying for position!

So those in a more precarious position, please don't let down your guard right away...

This from NewZealand. Looks like it will not be a major problem for New Zealand or Australia.

I'm not reading anything about problems for Pacific Islands. They are more likely to be hammered than Oz or NZ

I'd point out that according to what I've read, the worst effects happen 6-8 hours after the initial tsunami waves first arrive.
