Marine Weather Data

Much discussion in the "Crossing the Gulf Stream" thread about weather forecast & data sources.

For those who may not already know, the National Data Bouy Center maintains a website that is a portal to real-time weather observations from its array of bouys. Some stations are fixed ashore, others bouys.

For example, the fixed station at Settlement Point Grand Bahama Island can be found here: NDBC - Station SPGF1

Fowey Rocks Fl here: NDBC - Station FWYF1

Bouy 20mi east of Cape Canaveral: NDBC - Station 41009

You get the idea... a GOOD resource that can be used in your voyage decision-making process. Has data from sensors around the world.

With luck there will be a bouy station close to your intended track.
