I'm a big fan of practicing skills and today's winds weren't bad once you get out of the slip but the cold and precipitation would be no fun at all.

Anyone planning to go out today and calling it good conditions can't read a weather forecast much less a synoptic. Not good judgment.
I went out this morning and other than being below freezing when I left and just above when I got back the winds were light at around 10 knots. Just me and some seals and one lone lobsterman.. I wanted to beat the Nor' Easter and predicted 30-40 & gusting to 55 knots....
