Sunny weather is a plus. But it doesn`t matter if you are in a good mood for a sail.

Here's an oblique answer:





Light going through 1" of relatively soft sea ice, doing 6 knots at 1000 rpm and 80% propeller pitch. I'm outside filming while the ex takes her close by the Petterson wharf on radar, northbound out of Moss.

Boating is supposed to be fun. If one has to have a 'throw up' bucket, close at hand, it's not fun, IMO.

We boat in rain and fog without heistation. Seastate would be our primary factor. Size of swell, chop and prevailing direction dictate "go/no-go". Taking 6-8's on the nose between 10 and 2, is much different than a 5 ft following sea. If the wind is high, but I'll be sheltered in the lee of a landmass, then high winds never give the seas a chance to build.

I'm with you "boating is suppose to be fun" guys.... and prefer nice weather.

An occasional run in the rain or cold isn't bad to get to the destination, but high seas is a no go for me. Rain is not much of an issue unless really heavy and that and fog and show stoppers.

But in the weather it's a must to have wipers, radar, perhaps an autopilot and heat if needed, etc.

I fly down to Seattle Friday to pick up our new boat and deliver it to Alaska. In November.
Keep an eye on WindyTV for the next 2 weeks and you can see the weather we boat in.

Lots of differing viewpoints here. Some mention temperature or precipitation but the sea state is usually the deciding factor.

We all like to have fun on the water but we all have fun in differing ways. Often our (or the crew’s) susceptibility to seasickness the is the deciding factor. I try to match the crew to the sea conditions to avoid it being a limiting factor.

It’s interesting how some boats are limited by waves on the stern and others prefer waves on the stern. Makes me wonder why the majority of boats have a square stern.

Wifey B: AusCan hit it. Sea State. We don't care if it's raining. We care what the seas are like vs. the boat we're in. As to cold, we'll keep going in the 50's and even 40's but not our preference. We don't cruise in hurricanes. When we lived in NC, we just longed for a decent day to get out. In January, that meant anything 40 degrees or more. We even boated some in the snow.

We are liveAboards so rain doesn't keep us pier side. Wind, fog, and 3 foot waves will keep us tied up to wait for better weather.

In my case, b/c I boat in the relatively protected waters of the SF Bay and CA Delta while fishing, swimming and cruising. A square transom with a large cockpit close to the water is a big plus for me.

That being said, I've recently been in local delta waters rough enough to rip off my 2 yr old rubrail! Never thought that would happen!

When we were cruising full time, sea state was the only deciding factor. We are pleasure boaters, in that order. Cold, fog, rain, snow... all a pleasure in easy seas on our old Hatteras.

I’ve never seen a three foot wave that put the fear of God in me. I agree with Wifey B.

Wifey B: Yes, but at 3' I haven't ever found one that would make me stay in. Maybe if it was 3' at 1/2 second. I've seen some 3' Chesapeake Chop that was a bit rough but even that wouldn't keep me in.

"All weather" must also include the skill of 'captain' and crew.
