Thanks for Your friendly words about this slighly remote country..... Would say that despite rocky waters and short season, the archipelago makes this a nice place for boating, especially for shallow draft boats. Summertime is a good time for wisiting, winter weather here in the south can be very unpredictable, without snow here is dark like He**.
What goes for weather extremes, have good example from late 80's. As a youngster had the opportunity to wisit Fowey(cornwall), briliant place, friendly people and good weather. Guess it was January, temp was about +10 C. The same time back home we had
between -30 and -40 C for around 3 weeks.
fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway
