Default Weather and Water

Hey mfb357. . .

You said the weather looks good and it shouldn't be "too rough". Any idea what we can expect as far as wave height, swells vs. chop, etc?

Any local knowledge/input would be appreciated.

Bat boats run on Saturday????

If the wind picks up to about 15 plus and this is common expect it to be a short chop like you get in lakes. It can get real rough out there but not large swells it is ussually short steep smaller ones. The mornings are ussually flat and it builds all day.

Saturdays forecast is for calm winds from Northerly as a high pressure settles in, low humidity 45% with temps in the high 60 low 70's. I would expect a light chop. Sunday its back to normal for that area, strong SW winds will kick up 3-4 short chop. higher relative humidity 55% temps near 75-80. water temp is running 59-62 degrees. what do you think of that AUDIO!!? And Chris I for one would be happy to go for a ride in a bat boat. Mark B.

MFB357 Me thinks you have been watching the weather channel to much and they are NEVER right!!!!

Chris I will definatly give ya a call not only for a ride but also so we can talk about that boat system you wanted to do.

Cool

OK guys, I'm coming. I'm driving up tomorrow (SAT) with my Baja and I'm staying at Hyannis Marina. I'm coming all by myself (well, I'm bringing the dog) so if anyone wants to hook up Sat night or Sun during the day give me a call on my cell. (860) 208-8953. If anyone has any good GPS coordinates for where they will be or where a good place to watch the race is let me know. I've never been to this area on my boat so it will be a new expereince for me. Wouldn't mind meeting some fellow OSO'ers either. I'l have plenty of beer too...

Ted

P.S.

Audio, sorry I'm gonna miss your race if you are racing on Sat. Don't think I'll be up there by then. It's like a 4 hour drive for me.
