Marves Weather Service

A sad update on Marv of Marvís Weather, posted four days ago by his wife, Carol MarketÖ

(Edit: If you want to write a personal message on her post to her and Marv, she can be found on a FB search and the post is public. Messages left on this post will probably not be seen by them.)

Update from Carol Market re:
Marvís Weather Service
04/07/2022

We know that many of you are aware that Marvís daily Buoy Weather Reports have been paused for the last couple of weeks and we wish to update you on the current status. As of the first of the year Marv was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and we hoped that with a series of chemotherapy treatments he would eventually be a candidate for surgery. Unfortunately, that will no longer be an option as his heart decided not to cooperate with that plan and would not tolerate such a major surgical procedure.

Therefore, we regret to inform you that at this time Marv is no longer physically capable of putting out his reports. We wish to thank everyone for their support over these past 20+ years and let you know how much he enjoyed interacting with you all in the boating community. Making boating travel safe and pleasurable was his passion and ultimate mission.

Wishing you all fair winds and smooth seas in your journeys ahead!

Carol Market and Family

Sad. I just used it a couple months ago to do my crossing. Loved it.

Re: Marves Weather Service

Special Message From Carol Market
By now most of our current email subscribers to Marv‚Äôs Weather Service have received the new, reformatted newsletter and seen the new website; now we would like to give you quick update on what has been happening ‚Äėbehind the scenes‚Äô. Beginning late last year Marv began working with Pierre Narath in an endeavor to make the weather site load faster, mobile friendly and less labor intensive to produce.

With the onset of Marv’s cancer diagnosis we needed to step up the pace considerably and the site was developed into what you see today. Sadly, Marv passed peacefully in his sleep on May 22, 2022 but he was able to favorably review the site before that time came. With the help of Pierre and Buoyweather.com we are so pleased that Marv’s legacy will continue to be of service to our cruising community and that his mission of keeping pleasure boating safe and comfortable carries on in his name.
Wishing everyone fair winds and smooth seas!
Blessings, Carol Market and Famil
