Recently I was in the path of Super Typhoon Bopha.
Dry Armour took the time to do storm tracking and keep me updated as often as I could check his updates. He did this without asking and spent a lot of time making sure we were prepared and informed. We survived with no damage here due to a fortunate turn in the storm to our south but we were ready. Makes me proud to know there are people in this community that go out of their way to help a fellow sailor.

Thanks Dry Armour for the information and time you spent with me.
Thanks to Clean and The Ed for hosting the site and allowing this to happen.

From the Philippines with a big Thanks.

I says aye!

Mark - you have been able to see this thing coming way, way, way before it hit. And zero from the mainstream media from NA until it was an "event" on Monday. We/you knew that because of it.

Same thing with Katrina, Sandy etc. We knew the feces were in the rotary air conditioner. Don't stop please!

I'm becoming a sort of weather geek because of it.

F18 - hang in there mate!

Good for you for speaking up. Ditto.

Mark did the weather rounting for the delivery of my boat down from San Francisco

It was late January / early Feburary in Northern California so really appreciated.

Thank you all for your kind words folks. If I can help even just one of you save life or property from a storm then the work I put in to forecasting and then broadcasting my opinions is worth it. I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend. Thanks too to Scot and Clean for having this place for all of us to play and exchange valuable or NOT information!
