Thanks for the good wishes everybody, we are safe and well.
Same cant be said for scores of people killed in falling buildings.
Make sure you enjoy all those good days on the water as you never know when your whole world may be tipped upside down.
Pleased to hear you are well, We are out in Rangiora so not affected by the quake. I was at work at the airport when it hit and must say it scared the s#@t out me!
Watching that big concrete beam at Air New Zealands #1 hangar swaying around was a sight.
Take care and we'll hopefully catch up for that much needed beer some day when the dust settles.
