Pippen could you post the link to the site where you get your wind-warnings. thanks so much ><)))))*>
Fishabeth.....I am sure there are others out there but this an old standby that I use.

This is the "main" marine forecast page....and you will see you can just click on the area of interest.

Here is more detailed to the "southern coast"...and you can get more detailed as you cursor over the "region" and click for detailed reports.

Jay....here is a map with the stations and their specific data. Click and it will take you to the "specifics" for each station. To get to the "page"....when you are on the "Strait of Georgia - south of Nanaimo" page....click on the tab for "Weather Conditions". :peace:

I went out there on the straight on days the forcast was strong winds and once out thee, the sea was extremely calm....

Depending where you go, the best thing to do it to get a local weather station, Point roberts has a good one for example and you will get real data live time info...

But seeing how my Bayliner Bow-rider is exactly that... i wanted to give them the heads up.
Gracias...guys - sailflow.com seems pretty detailed.

just got back from four days on the west coast (ucluelet). we had 15' rollers that were supposed to get bigger on the weekend. btw, the fishing was the worst i have ever experienced there. and the island west resort has turned into the biggest dump you could imagine. i will be looking for a new place to stay next year.

i convinced "my crew" to heed the warning... anyone actually head out there today? Curious to know what it might have been like. CHEERs. - Elizabeth
It was fine. About a 3 foot moderate swell..that was it.....no complaints..unless you turned into a green martian! LOL.

Fish are around too! ;) Just make sure that when you catch them, you stay OFF the radio or you'll have 100000000000000000 boats headed your way. ::)
