I take it you are still on the bottle then. I am getting pissed off with the strong winds . rain is ok but strong winds means no boating and DIY

How to beat the British Weather.......

Simple......move you rib to Corfu, Mooring is cheap if not free, sun all day long,
no tides, blue waters, a jetty on every waterside taverna(free to use), Easy Jet flights as low as 28.00 for a flight. Did I mention half naked ladies.....Makes you think!!

Ah - ok then - no such thing as bad weather only the wrong boat! Perhaps something around 16m with a portacabin between the tubes would suit? I'm sure Willk's friends in Cushendall could sort you out with something.
