Why would a quake in the gulf of California pose any tsunami threat to Hawaii? It would have to be way stronger than 6.5, Cabo San Lucas would have to fall off of Mexico!

Never felt it in Southern California. Fished off the city of Loreto in the gulf and was stalked by a large hammerhead shark, almost as long as the 26 feet skiff we were fishing off. In fact as I reeled in a yellow-tail, lost a 1/3 of it.
