Re: Catamaran flips in Rough Seas - Fraser Island

OK I edited my post to make it easier for the punctuation challenged to understand.


So Seaslug, are you happy? You certainly seem to be quite chuffed about it.

We have started to remove posts after the warning has been issued. If we have to remove many more, the thread will be closed. Your choice.

Can you tell me what the picture/symbol is in the green box next to the "red cf moderator note"

Upside down tonsils maybe? It doesn't look familiar.

Re: Catamaran flips in Rough Seas - Fraser Island

Apologies for sounding grumpy, but why on earth are some of you playing the internet ego game? Some family has lost their home, maybe y'all could take a deep breath and back off a bit.

Someone's home's been destroyed, and all you care about is one upmanship?

Golly.

Re: Catamaran flips in Rough Seas - Fraser Island

When we crossed WBB in January 2016 the directional light led straight into breakers...
Luckily we used our eyeballs.

Re: Catamaran flips in Rough Seas - Fraser Island

Yes, the bar keeps shifting.






Always check the notices to mariners or contact Tin Can Bay coast guard before crossing. TCB CG will have the latest advice. And keep using those eyeballs!
