Glad I missed this

Taken while passing through Woods Hole, MA yesterday. This storm was to the south and appeared to be moving east quickly.

What you really missed was a fresh water washdown for your boat.
Put the Girl friend out there in her bikini to scrubbing the boat with soapy water and let the rail rinse it off.

Boasun,

I like the way you think. While cruising through the Bahamas for a couple of months. We had a nice long shower pass over us while anchored. All the other boats had not one soul to be seen. I broke out the scrub brush, and cleaned Imagine thoroughly. Soon I noticed folks peeking out at me. I was wondering....do they think I am nuts?.......i2f

LOL, yea... I typically attempt to get under one like that if no lightning is going on. Great opportunity for a fresh water bath/ shower on deck for the full crew. We look at this as play time it feels so good.

It also is a great time to top off the water tanks.

But this is after several days of salt water bathing and fresh water rinse offs if sufficient water is available.
