    You have it spot on Tim. The Culdrose met office is extremely professional, as you would expect. They also have weather buoys in local waters.

    But does the Met Office service chap have to ask permission to come aboard?

    BTW, I might be trying to handle incidentals on my own blog to try and avoid too much annoyance here, the results if any can transfer at a suitable time.
