Sailing? not me!!
  1. Super Volcano = Massive (Global?) Earthquake's
  2. Massive Earthquake = Tsunami's
  3. People on boats in Tsunami's = Fish Food

... FYI (anyone who needs to know )
If it happens that all havoc breaks loose - stay far away from me and mine - you might start looking like venison for the campfire ...

Not exactly true... Most Tsunami's pass un-noticed in deep water, and not untill the waters gets shallow does one notice. The partly true is the sometimes rough wave condition. These seem to be at Cape of Good hope most, then the Indian Ocean next, perhaps then the North Sea.

What seems odd to me is these rarely hit shore. I have no idea why that is.

Tsunamis? The safest place to be is out on a boat a few dozen miles outside the continental shelf.
