Welcome to the forum!
I'm pretty lazy, so I'm often content with the NOAA marine forecast
If I want more I bounce between the models on Windy (NAM, GFS, and ECMWF) and look at the amount of consistency. I'll also take a peek at some synoptic charts
, such as what you can find here: https://ocean.weather.gov/Pac_tab.php
I think the reason I don't use the NAM or HRR so much is they are short term models. When I'm particularly interested in the forecast
I start watching a week or so in advance, which they don't cover, and in the short term I'm usually happy with the text forecast
PS: My preferred method of search is to use Google
and search for "site:cruisersforum.com blahblah".
