    Now if that boat has a heater and is well stocked with liquid refreshments and you don't actually plan to move it anywhere, I'll bet you'll find some company

    Too bad the bouy by Pigot pt is down, I like to watch the wave height during storms.

    I will pass on the trip out to watch the waves...

    Gosh! Guys...looks like there's a "break" in the weather come Saturday! Only if you consider 20kts and 8ft seas a "break".

    No worries Skydiver...only 70-some-odd days of winter until life (and shrimping) springs forth with promises of gentle seas and easy breezes...I know that I cannot wait, either!

    Ya know, even on a reasonably calm day, I can't say that I often have " a relaxing boat ride". Seems that there are always fueling snafus, launching snafus, "I forgot..." snafus, anchor pulling snafus, engine-not-running-quite-right worries.... Not that I don't enjoy getting out in my boat, but to relax, not really. Canoes and lake boats are for relaxing IMO.

    Aaahh, it's not that bad. Only 15 footers at Seal Rocks.

    Unit of Measure: Time Zone: Click on the graph icon in the table below to see a time series plot of the last five days of that observation.
    Wind Direction (WDIR): SE ( 130 deg true )
    Wind Speed (WSPD): 23.3 kts
    Wind Gust (GST): 29.1 kts
    Wave Height (WVHT): 14.8 ft
    Dominant Wave Period (DPD): 13 sec
    Average Period (APD): 9.5 sec


    24 feet at Cape Suckling, though. I'm fairly sure I'd just stay in port with some Port and wait it out....

    I think with getting older my tolerance for excitement is declining. I use to like to run rivers in a jet boat, but now I find the ocean more relaxing. Unlike riverboats and airplanes, on the ocean when things get weird you can usually pull the throttle back and think about things for a bit before you make a decision...
