Heh... these are definitely "See-Ums"! They look like mosquitos and they're about the same size... and we really had swarms of them up on the flybridge each morning. Thought about sucking them up with a shop vac, but then decided trying to blow them away might work better... and our only shop vac on board just now doesn't blow. (Gotta fix that.)

The "No-See-Ums" I've seen are really tiny things, often not visible until after you focus on where it just started to hurt...
