Has any one used " Buoysweather" ? Is it worth the money ? are they accurate ?
I am reluctant to give My credit card number for a trial period of 15 days, but if it is worth it, then I have no problem shelling $80.00 a year.
Or if you have a better solution. I have SSB ham radio, and a weather capable GPS plotter "sattellite WX" Again before I invest the money I want
to know what people's experiences are.
Thank you for your inputs.

Re: Buoysweather

I would suggest you use the free bouy weather website to check the area you are familiar with and see how it matches up. You will see 2 days forecast on the buoy weather website.

We have been using BW for the past 7-8 years and find them good. Of course nothing is perfect but it's another piece of information that is throw together with all your other sources.

Safe sailing

Re: Buoysweather

I don't like the format that we get on the ssb so much but it's all we use at sea. In wi-fi range there is all kinds of other stuff for free.
