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.

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

- CD

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

That's quite the insane storm video, thanks for sharing!

Looking at the boat yard photo's, I don't see jackstands. What do you all use to support boats on the hard down there? Looks to be some sort of one size fits all cradle.

Nice one, Simon.

I wonder what anchors the boats in the river were using? I noticed in one of the videos (there's dozens from different vantage points) that downtown Brisbane has a river with moorings in it and the boats seemed to be there after the storm.
