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.

|tdw||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.|

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
