Well, thanks to our first official tropical depression (later to become Tropical Storm Alberto) of the 2006 hurricane season, we did not have much fun at all this weekend. The weather was miserable to say the least. The tropical depression was sitting just below and to the west of us and kept pounding us with winds and cyclical rain (almost like bands in a tropical storm).

All was not lost however, because we were able to take advantage of the ill weather and mount the new depth finder in the boat. We didn't get to finish installing the transducer and speed pickup, but we should be able to finish that off very soon.
