Well, Siamese, there's a huge difference between something that "pops up" and a predictable event. That's why the government charts refer to "the prudent sailor" because anyone who can be surprised and endangered by a large, predictable event...probably should be playing gold, not sailing.
If that surprises you, you're going to have some fun on the water.
And please note, making personal attacks on other forum members and calling them "jerks" or anything else, is against the forum rules. A moderator could ban you from the forum is you keep that up. Poke me again, and I'll bring it to their attention.
You don't have to like my opinions or agree with them, but the folks who run this place require you to keep a civil tongue--or be gone.
