This is just dumb enough I felt like sharing.

Completely confused my non sailing friends.

It actually had the Pavlov effect on me. Half way through, I started wondering when I'd hear the local near shore forecast!

yeah, me too

I can remember one cold foggy 4:00 am morning of my misspent youth when I walked up into the wheel house of the commercial salmon boat I was working on.

The NOAA Dude was droning on about square waves whilst the stink of the arcing stylus of the old paper graph Furuno filled the air.

And I thought to myself, Shit man, I'm getting seasick . . .

This is pretty ironic,

considering we were still tied up and hadn't left the dock yet :huh:

My only hope is that they actually broadcast that out over the airwaves a couple of times.

I can hear it now expecting the next weather forecast and getting that brilliant piece of music.

Sven. Because he sounds like a drunken Swede. Of course, if you listen to him for too long, you'd need a few drinks, too.

At the beginning, the way he used to mispronounce some of the local place names was hilarious: "Falmouth" became "Foul mouth", for example.

Northeast Region has largely retired that voice.
