Agreed.

Everytime it blows in Airlie from North(not only cyclones) vessels end up on beach or rocks. Everytime get a major flood in a river such as Burnett in Bundaberg (or Brisbane) there will be debry, flast flow and boats in trouble. Some people just don't get it. Burnett is definitely one you don't want to be in a flood.

Have a few photos of some of the wrecked vessels at Airlie I will post as soon as I get them off my phone.

Sad situation.
