Links: Weather, Surveys, Buoys, Tides

Here are a few links I keep at the ready when cruising. They are ordered from north to south for easy reference when underway:
- A list of weather buoys arranged from north to south. Good for knowing the actual wind out there, not the predicted wind.
- Water heights of actual vs predicted at key tide stations. Good to know if you're going through a shallow area nearby.
- Key ACOE surveys of areas that are shoaling or tend to shoal. I check these sites just before a transit through one of the listed shallows.
Also included are the key weather sites for hurricanes I use daily in the fall.
