Small craft advisory (Boston)

It was perfect out there today until the late afternoon!! The morning was calm, lunchtime was fine ( winds building) and then in the late afternoon it came on quick (after the Patriots won!).

My Raymarine ST40 was showing sustained winds from 17- 21 knots out of the SW all late afternoon. But there were gusts that were much more than that. I had to come down from the flybridge because I wasn't exactly overjoyed with my experience up there. Lmao. It was windy. Lots of fun though....Is it really October 15th in Massachusetts??? Next weekend looks awesome too (70's).

**MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE VIDEO TO 480P OR HIGHER RESOLUTION**

Took my Camano through some 3-4 seas Saturday

Had a small craft warning on the Chesapeake Saturday but wanted to experience it and get my sister a look at the Thomas Point light house. Short interval made it interesting head on. A little wet on the flybridge now and then. A few items flew around the salon. Had to turn quick to avoid the broadsides as she does roll a bit. Not bad at all with the waves astern heading back in. Don't think I will do head on 4 foot seas too often on purpose. I don't have trim tabs not real fun with the bow high above 8-9 knots.

Milton: The flybridges of our boats are only for fair seas IMO. In rough seas I'm always in the lower helm.

To your point: I didn't mind it at all! I'm coming from a smaller boat with a flat bottom so my new Camano feels much safer in conditions where my previous boat would not have.
