Covid 19 and liveaboards

Recommended Posts

Interesting to see the big Riv crasher coming back up the harbour when we finally get a breezy forecast yesterday, police said hi off Devonport but he carried on - I guess he does Live aboard anyway.

Under L4 dentists can still operate fir emergency treatment only (I’ve been 3 times in 2 weeks). Routine check-ups are a no-no at least until we get down to L3 if not L2 (we’ll know on Thursday exactly what is allowed in the newly detailed definitions on each alert level).

So meanwhile hold off and say no thanks to a routine check unless you are in some kind of dental pain. Because if you do suddenly have a problem you will be classed as an emergency and will get priority treatment ASAP - probably same day as I did.

Everyone here has converged on the one spot that offers best protection feon northerlies. I count 18 boats.

Hope you’re v well sheltered (from the SW) today - it’s blowing 50kts here in the city. I’m half expecting some trees down and power hiccups...
