Hail!!! John Ritter JR ritter@interserf.net Charlie has a WX station? I was a member of the NAS PAX sailing club but could never get a good enough observation to correctly predict effective sailing WX.

On Ike CVN-69 they had a radar scope and a port hole. Both were close together on the forward bulkhead of the island. When asked about a forecast they had a procedure...

look out the porthole, look at the radar scope, look out the porthole again... then predict a 50% chance of rain or good weather for the time and place asked about. They were always 100% correct!
