Does your insurance extend to floods ?

Re: Haul out/bottom paint in Australia?

Cruising Trimarans are uninsurable, thats what my years of research have found......
so no cover..just 3rd party for marinas.
A total heartbreaking loss

Man, so sorry to hear about your boat. Our very good friend's boat has broken free of it's mooring in Scarborough, while the are overseas. Don't know what's happened to it. Feel sick about this.

Tragic! But you have your lives and can go forward, although that may be hard to envisage at the moment. Just maybe your vessel can be salvaged and put right. Or maybe it will be a fresh start. Look to the future, you have your lives.

This is not the time to discussing global warming. but it is the time to be thinking more seriously about man's effect on planet Earth.

So sorry for you and sad to read this. Stay close to your loved ones at this time.

Re: Haul out/bottom paint in Australia?

Mattofosho, our hearts go out to you, mate! Any chance of finding her and towing her back in, in a couple of days?

My father's old boat went around the world once, through a couple of cyclones at sea and just sank yesterday on the hard in Bundy. The new owner had not even sailed her yet.

MATTOFOSHO:

So sorry to hear about your boat. Good luck on getting life back together again. Deal with what you must, and give yourselves plenty of space for contradictory feelings! 'Tis a time of huge stress, but also of opportunity.

Jim_Thomsen:

Sorry you're having to experience this. So far, from the video, it isn't too bad. Let's just hope the major fury of the winds abates. They were having sustained 50-60 at /Cape Moreton today, so I'm still worried for you-all there in a marina whose safety I question.

Good luck with it, lots of us are rooting for you, but don't tell the Aussies, 'cause that means something unmentionable here!

Our thoughts are with you,

Jim and Ann, Insatiable II, Hobart, TAS

Re: Haul out/bottom paint in Australia?

Thanks....still OK. Wind is in the upper 30's but not much more. It's high tide so a lot of water coming over the breakwater.
We are on "E" dock which I heard is the best one to be on. Things are bouncing around some but it seems to been doing fine. Today they moved a couple of boats to safer positions. One of the marina employees (Tim) lives on a boat and has been running around all day adding lines and checking on boats. Good guy!
Before this we didn't have a good "marina story".....now we do. Katie even got a picture today of a rock, bigger than we could have moved, on the pontoon that had been thrown over the breakwater by a wave today.
It should calm down tomorrow I think.

Re: Haul out/bottom paint in Australia?

That is fantastic video of the waves rolling over the breakwater. Mother nature at her best, glad she put on a great show for you! Thanks for posting that.

Much rather be in the safety of that Marina, glad you're getting looked after there too.

All the best!
