Very cute , very cute indeed. We don't get many seals down here , more's the pity.

Acknowledging what JRD said re schedules the other issue is comfort. I don't mind plodding along at one or two knots if needs be but when you factor in wash from stinkers and/or a rolling ocean swell it can be simply intolerable.
