They wouldn't have stood a chance unless they bolted straight behind the wharf when the wind first started. It came through that quick! Wind was pushing rain in sideways like a cyclone and I bolted inside with my coffee. I saw the ferry just outside the sand bar after it died down and first thought it'd broken down, then thought they were waiting for the lightning that was running across the sky like a bad case of varicose veins then realised there was an upside down tinny next to it.

I reckon the boys were definitely washing the shorts out by then.

Yep , surely they would've seen and heard it coming for ages and they were well within mobile range to check on BOM for the incoming storm and its direction of travel . :bonk:

Pure stupidy IMO. . . But I'll bet they were glad they got out of it OK
and I'll suggest that from this lesson they'll pull achor and bail next time. Unless they're slow learners :banghead:
