Default FL and Gulf coast boaters - check this site.

Every once in awhile there is a website worth sharing.
If you boat off FL or the Gulf coasts this site will give you wave heights several days in advance. They say they use info from NOAA so I would think it should be fairly accurate. The controls at top left of the chart allow you to scroll forward or back in 6hr. increments.
Someday I will let you know if accurate or not !! LOL

I was diving in the keys this past weekend.
Friday.. all trips were canceled. Saturday 5-7 only a few nuts like us went out. I never seen the Keys like this. Noaa and the coast guard weer off about a foot+. but close. I guess it depands on how far out and location.

Hey, Joe. Bob is good. I have been north for a week but will be back in FL next week. Launching the new NT. We should soon be heading into some great weather I hope.

This is a pretty good indication for the boaters out of Houston and Galveston....

The 2 sites seem to check. Looking at the bouy you referenced it is showing winds SSE @ 17.5 knots and 5.6 ft wave ht. The stormsurf site shows similar conditions in that area at this time.
