Well these dont look very good unless your there already.

Well these forcasts dont look good for the next couple of days at best unless you like a run out with 30knts of wind.

Looks like unless your there then it could be a real bumpy ride if you decide to go.

I have copied the synoptic charts but cant send them through,can somebody else do it,Ta.

The site is http://www.oceanweather.com/data/ and click on marine observation for the area.

Any body able to copy a map of the area and post it,it may be of help to others.

Good luck Boys
