Boating Weather Wanted

Does anyone have any decent boating weather for sale? Not looking for flat calm and sunny but I'd be interested in any improvement on the current shit.

Damn - Must have missed you. Saw you running downstream earlier with a full load of people wearing blue bin liners. Still looked more fun than the meeting I'm meant to be in....

Perhaps we could enter into a barter arrangement since the sale of Virginia weather is prohibited by law.

It's been too hot to use the boat (35C with a real feel of 43C) the past few days and there hasn't been any rain for over a week. I am in a position to trade 10C for a bit of rain. As I'm neither a mad dog nor an Englishman, I refuse to water the flower beds, or do anything else in the mid-day sun. Do we have a deal?

Deal - We'll take 10 deg C for a couple of weeks and give you all of our rain. Well it's not actually our rain, technically it's Scotland's but the Jet stream is refusing to go up to Scotland this year, who can blame it really, men running around with orange beards wearing skirts and tossing logs around.....

Sorry, no deal. If Scotland feels that what was supposed to be their weather is being stolen, Alex Salmond is sure to get involved and all hell will break loose. There is no doubt they will be claiming it back. They are not to be trusted - Hadrian was no fool.
