Weather.com has our forecast showing cool & cloudy this weekend, with some rain probable on Sunday. Pretty typical Memorial Day weekend for Portland, right?
Just because the weather's cool doesn't mean you can relax your attention on the water. You can still become dehydrated, especially if you're using adult beverages to "re-hydrate".
Watch your weather reports and if the rain comes in with a bit more force and wind than expected, have a "Plan B" for your water-related activities. Alternate moorage, make sure your equipment is in working order, radio function checks, and keep those cell phones charged up. Do you have your towing insurance up to date and a phone number handy?
Make sure you're staying safe out there!
