I hope I'm not becoming just a gadget collector, but I am considering buying
a Kestrel 4000 hand-held weather
meter. It measures wind
speed, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, etc. and can plot a graph to show trends over time for each variable. It seems to me that something like this would be very helpful to cruisers, but I don't want to spend the $250 if the unit is not dependable and reasonable accurate, or if the informaton it provides isn't useful in a practical sense. Does anyone have any first-hand experience with the Kestrel 4000 or a similar unit?
