Saw this explanation for the engine failure:
"Mr Holliday says the original fault to the vessel came from the a "problem from the Turbo blower which helps cool the engine", but crews had to keep using the engine in rough seas on Monday, causing more damage to it."
We`ve had threads recently regarding inadequate ER ventilation,seems it should be taken seriously if losing the blower can disable engine and ship.

40 days and 40 nights. I am sure I read that somewhere. History repeats itself?

This too will pass, stay dry and safe.

Third La Nina

Weather Bureau has declared a third successive summer La Nina for eastern Australia. It`s not conducive to or fun for boating.

Pales into insignificance compared to "Ian", but Sydney just set a new record for the most rainfall in a calendar year since recording began in the 1800s. And it`s only October!
Dams and rivers are full, ground is saturated leading to immediate runoff. Rain is forecast for much of eastern Australia this weekend. I still haven`t been able to get roof repairs done since the Feb/March deluge, roofers are so busy, and of course they won`t work on a wet roof.
Ah well, that`s nature for us. Funny when I recall Tim Flannery, purported climate expert, saying in 2009, the dams would never fill again.

well this is interesting. We have today extended water use restriction due to the drought. Longest summer without rain (to speak of). Are we going to rename the wet coast?
