  3. Forecast wind correct, Location spectacularly wrong. 20000 kilometres away, a very brief but very vicious squall about 60 knots dealt to two trucks on the Auckland Harbour Bridge. Truck one, a curtain sider was blown across two lanes into and almost over the centre concrete moveable barrier. Truck two, a flat deck carrying a container was blown into a vertical tie of the structural arch. Bounced off and continued on. The trouble was it snapped the structural tie off, so now 4 of the eight lanes are closed, could be for some weeks until a structural assessment and repair are made. Made a miserable commute home on Friday evening with the traffic jams reaching far back into the city streets.

  5. Wise call. Keep as much pleasure as you can in pleasure boating. Enjoy the lay day or two on a good mooring until it passes by.

  12. We spent the first few days of our ownership moored at the extreme end breasted two boats out in line with the white column. Here we provisioned, remedied deficiencies in the tool kit and waited for the great Aylesbury boat breakout by road to Milton Keynes. Bloody cold and gloomy it was, that mooring. "The Dungeon:" I remember Fulbourne was moored on the offside between the basin and the footbridge. Not even sure the footbridge existed then.
