"Challenging" Weather on Lakes Erie and Ontario today...

Winds kill man, create havoc across Ont. - Toronto - CBC News

Look at the embedded video and tell me if you can see the breakwall. I couldn't, and I know where to look...







And this just-bought 30 footer broke free at TSCC, a local club, where they lost three Dragon boats as well.

Look, it was just his time. That's not normal.

The video of the waves hitting the seawall is what I found interesting, and it's here:

Re: "Challenging" weather on Lakes Erie and Ontario today...

There has been some seriously bad weather out there, thoughts go to those involved.
Many killed, damage over a huge area with multitudes of hurricanes.
Tempting to say worse things happen at sea but not in this case.

Re: "Challenging" weather on Lakes Erie and Ontario today...

Yeh, its getting pretty weird out here. Thursday my apartment building lost part of its roof. Styrofoam and stuff all over the parking lot, on balconies, in the trees etc. Friday drizzling and moderate winds which didn't do much to effect the launch of the big boys by crane right up and over the fence. Saturday was sweet, sunny, warm but not too warm. Launched the balance of the boats in the club in 9 hours. (about 140 boats). We got Espina into the water, under command of the new owner, she fired up on the second crank. Went for a bit of a toot around the harbor while the new guy got a feel for her handling under power and then into the dock. Next week the mast goes up and he takes her away.

I keep asking myself, Why the hell did I sell her?

Now I have to grit my teeth and get going on rebuilding Sabre Dance. I am planning on getting her ready for launch for next April, with a new engine, fuel tanks, shaft log, prop strut and cutlass bearing, and a new main cabin, galley, nav station and reefer.

Oh well, I have my eye on a couple of 20-23 foot trailer sailors just so I can keep my hand in.
