I don't think i would go as far as to buy a cruiser but I feel your pain

We've been busy so I've been working six days a week since January.... this weekend the plan was to spend three nights at the islands and hopefully not remember any of it but it doesn't look like that's going to happen

don't feel special...here in the 1000 Islands the 10 day forecast has the little picture of raindrops for everyday.

The only savior in this, is the lack of pressure 'cause I'm not finished with a laundry list of installations and upgrades yet.

another week or so should wrap it up...

So far this will make six months of $hit weather.The boat is sitting under cover in a boathouse waiting to be used.Our forcast is calling for rain not only through Mem.weekend,but into next week as well.I will be heading south as soon as I can arrange everything.This is ridiculous.

Think of this this way. If you don't get it all of the time (4 times a week), it' s that much better when you get it. (Nice weather).

Sunday was bad, but Saturday was pretty nice. We launched for the first time this year around 1-1:30 and anchored out for the Air Show. The sun was shining and the Blue Angels were doing low altitude fly-bys. The kids even got out in the water.

The trick is that you have to take what it gives you. Call in sick, work Sunday instead, it's not going to be nice all the time.
