Just because you've got 30? years doesn't mean everybody else is stupid. I picked the best conditions possible for the whole month, according to all of the forecasts, and I would've had to wait the season out to do better. It's December.....and I'd already checked with the boatyard about leaving my boat there for the season. They said no because they are over crowded.
Maybe you might think of adding something positive instead of presenting the "high and mighty" attitude.
Sorry if you misunderstood me. I was not implying that you are stupid but just that there are some times that it is better back off than pursuing with hazardous conditions. I gave an example of a somewhat similar mistake that I had made some years ago, a mistake from where I had taken some knowledge that I wanted to share with you. I don't understand how that can be interpreted as "high and mighty attitude".
