Totally. Fabulous day yesterday, spent afternoon cleaning the tubes etc , put the boat in on this mornings high tide. Miserable, that thin horizontal rain that soaks in minutes. Couldn't see a thing. Had a quick look through Cuan sound, couldn't even see Easdale. Turned tale, stuck the boat on the mooring and headed home for bacon butties and a large mug of tea
