Hi, "Buddy!"

My apologies to all for spilling so much - everyone here was wondering aloud why the handheld wasn't enough, why I was nervous about his abilities, why I bothered - why you thought I wasn't listening - some of us do try to work it through, even when blasted for no good reason.

Thanks again, to most...

Sorry, was being tongue in cheek. No offence was meant, but I realize that my comment could be seen as offensive.

TakeFive will become famous soon enough
I only have a windex, and I use it all the time to determine optimum points of sail. But after reading this thread to go out and buy a handheld meter, so I got this (click pic for link to listing):



I suspect it will get very little use, but maybe when I'm curious in a heavy blow I'll pull it out and see what the apparent wind is. Note that this model can also function as a hand bearing compass.
