  1. Funny how these puppies don't get mentioned... https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/military/story/2020-01-20/two-more-navy-aircraft-carriers-to-bring-economic-boost-of-almost-2-billion-to-san-diego-in-2020?_amp=true
  2. So, curious about the details... When was this? Was the imagery of the storm missing entirely?
  3. Where else do you get (near) real time radar imagery more than 10nm offshore... Not that it matters much when you hardly ever leave a bay though.
  4. Just expecting them to deliver what they promise. And that is one really dumbass riposte, as the weather component is entirely separate from their music offerings. Here is what that weather did as it was coming east... https://www.weather.gov/lot/2021jun2021

Another boat further south by the Sables has been hove to and forereacing since yesterday, but has finally started moving north again. [edit] Reject, the 1D48 was up in the Straits before things turned wild for everyone else. Things were little better for the Port Huron Mac racers as well. Three boats finished with the rest seeking refuge in Rogers City and Presque Isle. Octo
  10. Lol! Certainly memories can be hazy while making that trek! Speaking of which, hope to be there in 3 weeks on the Solo Mac... This year's participant count is one of the highest since the inception of the race in '96! https://yachtscoring.com/event_scratch_sheet.cfm?eID=14408 And a number of folks are turning back around to do the "Big" Mac just a few weeks later...

  11. That particular 'cottage' is a private residence...
