Surviving .... catastrophe .... AustrailaFantastic to hear your yacht survived intact.
I have always prepared my maxi trailable cruiser as an escape pod for a wide range of emergencies.
Just a major power outage can turn most locations into disaster zones within days never mind the devastation of a major hurricane/cyclone, wildfire or earthquake event. A fully equipped cruising yacht with solar systems, water maker and fishing gear is a great bug out choice if in a location that survives the initial catastrophe. Mine being trailable gives it a bit better chance of surviving ( I have had trailable yachts star picket secured to the ground survive cyclones previously) and also potentially opens a wider range of location choices afterwards.
Thank you Max. That's very thoughtful of you.@Jules
I read the other thread in GA before this one.
I have a car and the ability to have things delivered and to bring your way. Come to think, I actually just replaced my flex panels and gave the old to a co worker and if he hasn’t installed them I’ll get them back and give to you. It’s 400w of GoPower, a bit milky but still working
LMK if you’re interested
All these suggestions for gas powered stuff, having things delivered and so forth seem a bit Alice in Wonderland - the whole area is devastated, gas station tanks full of water, no communications, roads blocked etc.
Jules said it was going to be days before she could even get in to check her place and you think Amazon is going to be delivering solar panels?
