Useful WebSites and Apps

Hi, im about to venture away and do some blue water cruising. I'm looking for helpful websites and apps that will help me get info on everything from where to buy best fuel n supplies, locate anchorages, to best weather and nav apps. Basically anything thats been useful to you as im a newbie.
Ill be sailing solo most of the time so networking sites would be helpful

Thanks

Pick up a copy of the 2016 Atlantic Coast and ICW Cruising Guide. Even if you are not in these waters it walks you through every reference from regulation and safety, to navigation to weather to social apps, charts and references. And is a fun read.
