maybe a little warmer than normal

On the gulf coast don't remember this much heat past several years, while on the water today the wind was just plain "hot", worried that it might effect our hurricane season

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched.
