Rant

Whats the point in having a boat with this f***ing crap british weather. I do shift work and often work weekends so time off for me is precious and dont often get the time off and the tide being at the right time. The few times i have been off and the tide has been at the right time the f***ing weather has been s**t. God i hate this country! Thats better rant over, now going to take it out on the ol woman.

Well, I've been out more than ever this year & I live in Plymouth. (for those not in the know; Plymouth is Olde English for 'Rains a lot')

I work shifts as well. Much better 'cause you get to be out skiing whilst watching the masses drive to work!

Trick is to ignore the weather; get up at 'stupid-O clock' if necessary & just go whatever.

Cheers

Darren

I live in Mallorca, and that sorts out all the weather issue's. Sun is out most of the time flat calm bay, most of the time! oh and to top it all off it's about 28 degree's and the summer has only just begun.
