We took FIRE HATT out of the Harbor at midnight Friday night and hung out offshore in 5000 feet of water to avoid the the Kona Tsunami. As you know, nothing would be felt or noticed there. Below is a video of what happened in Downtown Kona, as most of you who have been or lived here know, this may take quite a while to repair.

As dawn broke, when the video was taken, Honokohau Harbor in Kona, looked like the Mississippi River with running surging water for hours. Those of us who own our own boats stayed out most of the day as when boats tied up early they bucked and bashed. Only one sailboat sank as it was left inside unattended.

With all of that going on, Miss Linda said, “Since tomorrow is my birthday, I want the two of us to go fishing!” We did and caught two Ono (Wahoo) 30+ pounds and two Mahi (Dorado) 20+ pounds. She caught them all and was a very happy woman so Happy Birthday Linda!

We are fine and wanted to thank all of you for the calls, emails and texts.
