I'm The Idiot

who thinks that wind over tide means that the wind and tide are going the same way. When the tide turns, but the wind doesn't that becomes wind against tide.

Simple really.

It works perfectly for me at any rate.

Re: This nautical terminology

I would agree with Wind over tide to mean the same direction. Wind against tide would mean the opposite.

Very sporting of you to try and keep on thread. Sheena is also very upset that you don't rate her beauty. Donald his is what our popular green sprayhood looks like and is doing what it is designed to do. It didn't come in a tin. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j193/donald_beaton/th_DSCN0069.jpg

Our spray hood is magnificent. Its a plasticky material - not acrylic but sits very tight on the frame. The perspex window is very clear and distortion free.

I wouldn't like to comment on just how much this cost! Luckily we bought the boat with it already fitted.

East Coast

Donald Sounds as if it was a bit boring at times (Beaches and headlands). I've had a quick look on Google earth at the coastline - isn't technology a wonderful thing. I would like to go to Carlingford and Stranford Loughs but am unsure if there is anything of interest other than a few places between...

Sheena has her beady eye on it. Would replace our rusty old thing perfectly.

Looking Ahead

Next Summer hols look as if we will be heading south and west rather than north. Hopefully the east coast of Ireland, maybe as far south as Cork and back - being daring here - via Wales and IoM. Am I being ambitious in that three weeks max is all I can spare :shock: . What do the Forum recommend in ...

Doh! didn't get that far down the posts.

Must try and keep up. I went through something similar and lowering the tack sorted it for me on my last boat.

Glad to see you got fixed up.
