I got caught out in the storm in the middle of the Peconic in my boat we were tyied up rafting & heard the rummbles turned on the radar & I didn't see any storm coming thought it must be all up high & no rain. kept eating & drinking rummbles got louder & closer so i look again? nothing?
Well we decide to start heading in all of a sudden I was playing with my radar & hit the rain button & tuned the dial +/- it in & the storm was on me like no one's business completly green screen looked out ahead and there was a wall of water coming down from the sky looked like a shower curtain when we drove into that all **** broke loose lighting, hail, rain, winds, everything but the kitchen sink. took me 3 passesd at getting into my dock to tie up.
Morale of the story I forgot how to use my radar in a storm & when I figured it out it was to late the storm was on me if I realizesd it sooner we all would have made it in with having the crap scared out of us. LEARN YOUR ELETRONICS IN GOOD WEATHER & BRUSH UP ON THEM ONCE IN A WHILE SO YOU WILL BE PREPAIRED & NOT CAUGHT LIKE ME. CHRIS
