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.

swung with the ebb and flow about 5 or 6 times. softly grounded on one outgoing. sea level dropped maybe 6 feet plus. Glad I put a new swivel on the anchor. I'd left 150 feet of chain out in 15 ft of water expecting a higher surge, never happened. Not too exciting as far as events go

Just checking in.
Where ya'll keep'n the wimmin 'round here?

The good news is that the wave was small. What's even better news is the system can work, and most likely save lives when there is time for a warning........i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Seriously erratic tides in Sydney yesterday. Both afternoon low and evening high were way outside predicted levels. There was no way that anything under a massive tsunami would present any danger to us so we were not concerned about going out to the boat but there was something kind of spooky about the place yesterday. It was weird.

It is GREAT news that no one experienced any devastating waves. If only the people of Chile were as fortunate.

Wow.

Glad to hear the folks in the path of the tsunami wave fared okay. You guys are cool cats. After seeing images/footage of the Indonesian tsunami a few years back, I'd be pretty anxious riding it out in any harbor within the predicted path.

That said, it must have been fascinating to watch up-close, first hand. Any footage? Or were the effects too gradual to capture on anything but time lapse?

Also, while it's good news the destructive tsunami didn't materialize, as Joe says let's not forget the folks in Chile. 8.8 !! I can't begin to imagine what that must have felt like.
