Tsunami action in Charleston - got lucky so far
The Harevester was birthed in the Charleston Harbor when the earth quake in Japan hit and the tsunami action came our way. Captain Tyler was on the scene while many boats took to the seas around 2:00 PST to avoid any large surges at the docs. The Harvester wasn't ready to go so we just made sure she was hooked up good.
Capt. Tyler reports that the tide waters were running in and out about once every 15-20 mins and some were very strong, with some boats breaking loose from the docks -- they were quickly recovered with not a lot of damage. The outgoing tide was like a river running fast that stressed moorings and 'it was pretty damn strange'.
So it looks like we dodged a big bullet this time in the Charleston Harbor. Not so lucky are Gold Beach and Crecent City CA
