BTW, in the tropics, it is often worth putting on foul weather gear for some of the heavier storms, as the water is very cold, relative to the ambient air temperature. Rain, from a thunderstorm's cumulonimbus cloud, is often falling from 20,000 feet above the ground, and its temperature may be close to freezing. It doesn't take long, standing out on the deck in your t-shirt and shorts, for the rain to thoroughly chill you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
