"....high winds. Three sailboats broke their moorings in Hilo Bay and ended up on the rocks."

Called the mainland and was asked to call back in an hour so I have a bit of time on my hands.

Highly doubtful that any of the boats can be salvaged now. Yesterday they were afloat but today they're foundered and if the shoals were deep enough they would be sunk. Last year something like this happened but the CG responded right away and towed the sail boat off the rocks and remoored it. What's going on with the Harbor teams today, I just don't know.

This wind has taken all the warmth out of the air and I'm freezing........
