    Seriously. But, I'm currently in the process of installing a new VHF since my old one crapped out, so it's not safe to go out... and I'm secretly slightly happy that it hasn't been nice. :p

    Question - anyone have a canvas shop they use? I am looking to get a few zippers replaced.

    And.....the Memorial Day weekend forecast looks to be holding steady on "pretty bad".

    Maybe dealing with hurricanes isn't such a bad gig....

    It's way to early to worry about this weekends forecast. Thursday night they MAY actually be pretty close to getting it right. Of course what would Memorial Day weekend be like in Chicago if it wasn't cold and rainy?

    Funny how Chicago works. Bad weather for nearly all of May then record breaking warm temperatures. Never thought I'd say this but I actually got boated out this past weekend. Think I put at least 12hrs on the boat.

    I hear ya, and I think everyone did the same. We were out Thurs and Fri evening, day/night on Saturday, and Sunday/Monday day. I went to Diversey to wash the boat yesterday after work and it was a complete ghost town. No one out, no boat traffic, nothing. I think everyone was boat-hungover from the weekend. That said, I'll take a weekend like that anytime Mother Nature will give it to us!
