We arrived two days ago and missed Saturday night’s excitement when a similar blow roared through and peeled several boats from their moorings and dragged the anchors of others.
One two-masted ketch slammed into an old freighter that’s rusted over with age. Damages are yet to be determined.
S/V Tsamaya fortunately held fast to her mooring, installed and guaranteed by African Pride. That’s the vendor’s name, not his background. He promised our friends Bob and Janice that their mooring would hold. He invited Bob to dive it and after spotting the twin drums wrapped in chain, Bob was quite satisfied it would.
We anchored Happy Times off Princess Margaret Beach. We’re the furthest boat south except for one other vessel. Mikayla complains about the distance from town, but evidently the holding here is good. We’ll stay put.
