Ah ye say that but have ye home and contents insurers considered global warming and tsunami risk in addition to earthquakes...?

Actually, the risk of tsunami is incredibly high, according to my environmental sciences lecturer. Shouldn't really go into it, cos you'll wanna go underground :lol:

tsunami meetings were supposed to be reassuring, I'm not so sure myself.

also somewhat skeptical about next H&C assessment, plus Rates up too.

What I've seen so far is everyone getting in a tizz about the amount of damage but at the same time forgetting about the probabilities.

The modelling has also been carried out based on the worst possible case scenario - a 1 in 50 year tsunami from the worst possible place (somewhere off the coast of Chile) on a spring high tide. A 1 in 50 year tsunami doesn't mean it will happen every 50 years, it just means an event which is calculated to be the level of flood water expected to be equaled or exceeded every 50 years on average.

Go figure the chances of those two combining at the wrong time...

unlikely at best.

my beef is the access-way out, simply put Bridge St is not adequate. Is now not the ideal time to look at wide option planning for infrastructure? it's also personal choice, despite the risk of tsunami it's a great place to live out here and if we did get a 'proper' one it would probably take us and the house... I shouldn't moan.

the panic on 04/09/10 shows people will act in their own interests and some thought needs to go into mitigating it. It took us 20 minutes to hear there was no tsunami , my Wife wanted us out immediately, my 'guess' was it was the Alpine Fault and that staying put was the safest option.

oh we laugh about it now but at the time it was terrible, well pleased all the kids were here, be a circus if they were not.

Well there's a couple of things to bear in mind here.

In the event there is a tsunami resulting from a local seismic event, you may not get a warning.

New Brighton IS a VERY vulnerable area. The fact that its a sand bar should raise alarms if nothing else. But people make choices to live there because of other priorities.

good to catch up with Steve and Tony and meet Mike and James

photo L-R is
Mike (with Tony's Stingray HH), foal (with CK's Pedulla), Tony standing with my Jazz and James with my Precision.

btw the Pedulla is an un-f***ing-beliveable instrument.
Tony's Orange Amp is a winner too, I probably need to get one.

Yep,

Great to meet some fellow bass players and forum members.
The range of equipment on hand and the experience wielded from only 5 members was especially gratifying, as was the opportunity to test drive numerous basses. Imagine if we all got together hypothetically, we would need a week at least.
Big ups to Reuben for hosting this event.

Its the best fretless on the planet. Some come close but none do it with the same drama.
