    Just talked to the office and their are a few spots left for this Fri am's departure.
    I would like to say I'm on it but I can not confirm that I'll be free this week end yet to go.

    If I am not able to get on it. Good luck for those that are.

    So far yes.
    I've looked at the Weather underground\marine\wave heights up to Fri am
    and the forcast looks good. I did not check as far as sat or sun though.

    Well I chewed on that one and it didn't taste good at all.

    At least that explained the fri :am model I ran.

    Looks like someone could steal a Hobbie Cat

    And blow out to the floaters in a few hours.
