Marine weather forecast a bit drab.

Resulting in a wet front porch.

More rain to come.

Winds honking to 19 kts. out on the reef.

Caught some mangrove snappers off the basin wall.

Detail of snapper's scales...

...and eye.

Some blue sky trying to poke through up there...

...without a great deal of success.

”After a three-month trial period, PDF versions of NOAA nautical charts will become a permanent product, free to the public. The free PDFs (http://www.charts.noaa.gov/PDFs/PDFs.shtml), which are digital images of traditional nautical charts, are especially valued by recreational boaters who use them to plan sailing routes and fishing trips.”
