  1. Awesome rebuild and cool shop! You've inspired me to buy more clamps, and a few more japanese hand saws;-) Tim
  2. I dunno what the offshore buoys are primary used for, but they are quite a ways out there. There is a string of 6 or 7 of them running up/down the west coast. I think most of them are operated by NOAA. I looked up one of them, and it is anchored in 4000 meters of water... way off the continental shelf. Environment Canada has some buoys out there too, but I can't seem to find them in Windy for some reason. There are some inshore buoys as well, but you have to zoom in to see them. Here's a screenshot of the string of offshore buoys in Windy: Tim
  3. You guys may know this, but you can also display some of the weather buoys and stations on Windy. Some of the buoys unfortunately don't show up for some reason (e.g. a lot of the Environment Canada buoys). Others only show up if you zoom in pretty close. The US offshore buoys 300 miles off the coast show up pretty easily as does the one off the Columbia. Valis your buoy #46087 shows up if you zoom in close enough. It's remarkable how accurate the models seem to be some times. I circled the button to turn these on in Windy in red in the screenshot below. Tim
  4. Thank you guys for the great updates! I've learned a ton following this thread and alctel's thread. It is fascinating to watch her west coast passage unfold "real-time" between Windy, her tracker updates, and the various recaps/blog entries. She is one tough lady! Tim
  5. Great story, great boat! Very best of luck to you. Tim
