Hong’s boat aground after typhoon

Our favourite diving boat, Hong’s junk has run aground after Typhoon Molave on Saturday night. I’ve not got details yet, but it looks as though it broke its mooring and wound up on the breakwater near the pier at Tai Mei Tuk. I’m not sure how long it will be out of action, but good luck to them getting it sorted out and back in operation.

It looks as though SCDCwill have to find an alternative boat for this weekend’s dive.

Molave hit the territory on Saturday night with the number 9 signal being raised at 1:30 am on Sunday. Wind speeds were reported as reaching 148 km/h.
