Storms Are Brewing

On the 16th of November 2008 the Brisbane area was lashed by a number of storms. I was here at the Marina in Scarborough when they hit, damage to the surrounding suburbs was monumental.

Here is the link to a vid storm
and the photos of a 1985 Bene 45 on the hard stand here itt was lifted off its cradle and written off.

Thud... Looks like the boatyard was actually lucky in that they didn't get the domino effect.

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.

Ouch. I guess it was blown over by the wind, or was it storm surge?

PS Nice Nordhavn there beside it - a 46 I believe.

That video was excellent! That would have been something special to have witnessed first hand.

Small is beautiful, simple, cheap, and easy......

Simon thanks for the video. Growing up in the mid=west of the US we have a name for a storm like that. It's called a F2
