Doing the Weather
Henry on Windquest usually does the weather here in Porlamar. He went to the coast to haul out and have some work done on his boat. I volunteered as no one else was willing. It has been a great 10 days looking at the websites and gribs and predictions. Well.... I got it right this morning as a tropical wave was coming through at 0300. I forgot about the back end and had predicted 10 knots for today in the anchorage. Needless to say when the back of the wave came through it was almost 20 knots. A couple of boats dragged their anchors but no damage! Oh well live and learn!
