The Illawarra storm dumped 365mm of rain on the site in 3-4 hours....

Scoured away most of the western end....

The other is going to be a pain in the proverbial... coz they dug the holes about twice as deep as they needed to be.... :upset:

Try setting a height, level and straight line... suspending the posts in mid air... :roll:
