Now I KNEW the weather moves faster than a trawler but it is a whole new lesson to see the wee little spot on the ocean about to be under a deep low and the best one can do is to try to move away from the worst part of the weather.

Actually the lesson I learned is that i really cannot even move away. I'm simply too slow and the scales are such that for me to be 50 nm east or west of a given point is simply not significant.

To develop an overall plan is fine, but more than that??

I just needed to be more clear as to what I needed
