Thanks,timetable helpful.Have our yacht moored at marina and can't move it to deep water due to waiting on part for heat exchanger coming from America. It's 2.45am at the moment and we are checking our boat insurance and hoping all will be ok in6 hours.

Assuming it isn't on the hard, couldn't you sail it out to deeper water?

Tao,

I suggested to Simon to get a tow out of the harbor, and then sail. Their engine is in pieces.......i2f

Looks like its including south of sydney as well at this stage. Guy that shares our pen may leave for deeper water and we will then move our yacht to the middle of the pen. Will let you know how hubbies idea works. Meanwhile im hitting the caffeine and hoping my worry is in vein.

My daughter lives near the ocean on the east coast of Oahu. She told us that they're presently evacuating the low-lying areas along the coast.

Prayers everybody.

I doubt we'll see anything here, being at the East end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
As we're about 120 nautical miles from the ocean, I suspect the strait would act as a wave damper. If we do see anything, my best guess is about 4PM PST.
