Seems like a funny place to tow a massive boat like that.

Sorry to read what you have been going through with number of fatalities, this type of wind speed we get rather regularly over here, but one thing for sure our bushes.... sorry TREES will not break nor fall down but often even in summer caravans blow away whole towing beside mountains even boat like happen to me last year as I was towing a SAR rib north for delivery..... 6 o´clock Saturday morning and no traffic so no help at all......

Wish you will be having better weather soon, perhaps like have here at the moment, no wind, clear skies, sunshine and some -12 degrees here south and almost -29 degrees up north and not to mention heck loads of snow

Bogi

We get such winds here in Wales all the time as well Bo - usually higher than elsewhere becuase of the funnel between Ireland and Cornwall - we don't get much damage either - I haven't seen a single tree down - just a few branches off. It's only when the South of England or the East coast gets the storms do you get real havoc. There aren't many trees on the exposed West coast to worry about - and the ones that do grow all go sideways!!!

Seems like that in the South of England you get some real old large trees that don't often see bad weather in some pretty poor soil. When the bad weather comes then nature takes its toll.

That sounds ominous.

Lyme bay=deep and off major shipping routes.

According to sources on another forum, the two french tugs are currently beaching the container ship in Lyme Bay.

That will be pretty close in - even with a 40' draft. Under ballast of course she will draw a lot more. Wonder how long it will be stuck there? Bet the environmentalists will love it!!!
