Our problem has been cool temps - shaping up for record cold/wet spring looking at May/June. Winds up and down, all or nothing most days. Last weekend we were out 4 days, pleasant enough if you dressed for it, but both trip over Friday afternoon and trip back Monday was 5-6 hours motoring in glassy calm... not what we're after.

This keeps up we'll start shopping Grand Banks'....
