The only place you have to worry about rain is in port. At sea, the ship can sail around the storms.

But even in port, the storms are usually short and sweet, unless some large weather pattern is coming through.

And the reports tend to be wrong most of the time in them thar parts.
Well said !

I remember being on the Freedom at it was raining only on the aft of the ship. People were scrambling to get out of the rain.

But it never rained on the forward section of the ship .
I am amazed how well those Captains sail around the storms.

Shortly the Aft dried and everyone was back on deck .
