We had our boat on a mooring
in Trinity Inlet/Cairns for Cyclone Yasi -- while we were sweating it out in Vietnam! No damage, thankfully, since Yasi veered south in last hours and spared us ... our boat "watcher," a long-time seaman who runs a slipway in Cairns, kept us on the mooring
since he thought we'd have more damage being banged about in the cypress ... not sure if he would have been right if Yasi had hit Cairns, but all's well that ends well.
One concern I have as a cat owner is that Cat 5 winds can get under the bridgedeck of a cat, and lift
it clean up ... I heard one passing news report during anxious moments of tracking Yasi from afar of just that happening ...
