The raw power of Force 12 winds became soberingly apparent when a micro burst hit the Bahia del Sol Marina, El Salvador. Boats ripped off moorings left and right and ping – ponged through the mooring field, the marina docks shook apart, and the J-36 Tolerance was totaled when it violently smashed into a concrete pier. It was a tense 15 minutes of hurricane-force wind, but luckily nobody was hurt. Just imagine what even 5 more minutes of wind could do. Zachary.
