This type of conditions would strain almost any sailor. Even at the dock your boat is at risk. Been checking mine and others on the dock 2x a day. Yesterday a 40 foot fishing boat broke 1-1/2 dock line and was ready to bang the boat next to it- tied it off again. Also helped friend secure her 40 footer as two 1 inch dock lines had broken. This is all due to high winds and wave surge. I understand on Maui 3 boats have broken moorings and run aground, along with a commercial sailing catamaran whom lost engine going into channel.
Thanks Casey

Do you have any updates?

Last couple days a cold front has passed through which gave the unusally high velocity northwest wind direction. Today winds will beome lighter trades (north east) but the large north swell will continue for the next several days, although slightly smaller. Then Monday anther big 20 foot swell coming in from Alaska, but with normal trade winds. Note that a 20 foot open ocean swell generally makes a 40 foot wave face when it breaks on shore. These are the same wave trains that Washington and Oregon get.

Brad sounds like quite a Captain (women and children first)- I know of a cruise line looking for a few good men!

Don't know but in this link there is a pic of it (not very good) on the right margin.- from what is shown looks like a solid vessel.

Hard to tell what kind of boat it is, might be an older Swan with the blue stripe and teak deck.

Jack I know a perfectly good reason for having Edmonton or Calgary on the transom - tried to arrange it for my boat too. Also nice to see you rise to the bait.

After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.

I think that these Facebook photos are it. No teak.

.. or perhaps an early Bavaria, and some of the CT boats had that similar 'swan-ie" look and trim...

Jack if you look at the photo on the link that Casey posted there is teak on the deck and on the cabin top too. Maybe they got the boat pictures switched along the way.
