Thanks, Christian. That is a great looking site. Nice addition to the info we are pulling together. With the turn that it is showing we could be tracking this storm well into next week. Hopefully it will just fade away.
See you in Key West.
Bob

Default NOAA Marine Weather forecast at Saturday evening

Tonights forecast now includes next Thursday.
This forecast is for the Atlantic waters from Key Largo to Key West.

THESE STRONG BREEZES...ALONG WITH OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT GALE FORCE WIND GUSTS...WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS TONIGHT INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.

He, he. People only love the weatherman when the sun is shining, GL. That is one of the dangers in taking on this job. Just want to do what I can to help keep everyone safe. Looks like everthing is going to work out fine.

I'm stuck here in Canada until Tuesday then I can get back to my Florida boating. Stay safe and see you in Key West on Thursday. I'm in the Galleon and I think you are as well.

Bob

Default Final Key West Weather posting - looking good !

Since the effects of Hurricane Ida on Key West will be diminishing as the week goes on I see no need for posting additional weather info unless there is a substantial change in the forecast. Conditions look good and I will see you all in Key West. I get to travel on the Gulf where conditions are not as great as this routing thru the Keys. Anyone wanting any additional or specific info is welcome to contact me if they cannot find it in the links referenced in this thread. Thanks for the many PM's and notes from those that have an interest and followed along. See you in Key West on Thursday!
Bob
