Yep, very tempting to pull out the foulies, toss in a reef, and head out for a BFS.

JohnRPollard - this is your big chance dude! Go get that "encounter" then bring it back for the boys! We're counting on you. Make Beaufort cry with shame that he ever ignored you!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dog - c'mon dude! You don't need to already be slamming JohnRP. He's just trying to get his first BFS under his belt. Man, you're always so negative!

You obviously missed the qualifier "gettin'", which means "getting". As in "approaching."

It hasn't increased over the last couple of hours, but we're supposed to get quite a li'l nor'easter over the next two days. Gusts up to 50 and such. That'll push you around the Inner Harbor pretty good.

12-25 isn't gnarly... 45+ is...
