"Hi Richard

At Chagos an Aussie boat Shoestring ended on the rocks at Takamaka after a front came thru. Smashed rudder, bent drive, and holed plus other damage. The hole was plugged with epoxy putty and the boat beached at Boddum. Rudder replaced with old centreboard, hole ground out and glassed, and rest repaired except for drive. Prop cut off and shaft not sure. Thet are now ready and will be leaving for Africa in the next couple of days. The Tsunami was a non event there. In 2004 it was only 2 1/2 feet but was very noticeable so this time it was obviously zilch All the Best Jock Backchat"


The above message regarding Tsunami at Chagos confirmed by other cruisers now in Chagos.
