The weather is not usually this bad, i think you have just had a bad run.
Good to hear the conditions were ok while at sea though.

Thanks dirkdig, the area is on red alert at the moment due to the heavy rain and king tides, no issues tomorrow but the talk around time is that "tonight is the night" we are not worried, pretty secured here
