Thats possibly one to ask your insurance co. As every company has different rules in thier policies. Obviously, aussie boats are insured in FNQ NT and Northern WA via aussie companies. You may need to reinsure when you get here.

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 ...

Any thoughts?

Just wondering when hurricane season in the coral sea is usual over, and when would the weather be ideal for making a soloman island to brisbane passage. i know the noreasters pick up in the summer. but are they still around after hurricane season as well?
