Looks like most of the West Coast is under a T-warning. Loosen your spring lines and run out some more anchor rode!

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Hawaii is reporting this as a non-event so far. Nothing reported above shoreline on the south shore of Oahu. The reef at Diamond Head has been exposed a half-dozen times now on Oahu. Haleiwa Harbor has had some flooding, reports of fish washed up in the parking lot.

Japan, however, has been hit hard by the quakes and tsunamis. Terrible destruction and loss of life in Japan. Reactor leak and ongoing aftershocks.

I think it would be wiser to get one's boat to sea and in deep water if at all possible. The surge could be pretty spectacular if the news reports are to be believed.

FWIW...

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Depending upon view of things, not sure 6' waves are non events. certainly not like what happened in Japan, but still some waves. 2-3' waves are predicted for the west coast of Wa, Or and Ca right now. Ay one below 50' elevation in Or is recomended you go to higher ground per another person I know. got into his MH as he is at 45 or so feet. Figured it was better too, than not to evacuate. I also know some one that lives in the channels South of Ventura.......Could be interesting over the next couple of hours. I doubt the surge will get into puget sound where I am.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

"Non-event" and "failnami" are quotes from KHON2 news. Reports are Kahului and Haleiwa have significant harbor damage. Still waiting on surise to asses damages.

CNN is reporting 3 waves of it to hit west coast in 6-8 hours now .. 8' waves of 30 min duration thay say stay a mile away from shore for it ...

Boaters get out to sea and it should roll under your keel

Good luck Westies !

There is no right way to do the wrong thing

The pictures are heartbreaking for Japan. A lot of people died or are dying. My thoughts go out to all of them.

If anyone wants to keep track on the scene via webcam, here's the link for the entrance to King Harbor. Maybe a couple of moderate-sized waves will flush out all the dead fish .

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
