"Live" Buoy data maps

Here's a great link for a map that puts all the buoy data from a whole regions buoy's right on the map: http://www.pdfamily.com/weather/buoy.php ! No more clicking on each buoy! The list of additional maps includes the entire US coast, Alaska, Hawaii, Great Lakes, Gulf, Caribbean and even some of Europe.

Great tool! However, as I am out on the "left" coast sailing mostly S.F. Bay, I'm wondering how this works. I would love to get the same data on the bouys in/around S.F. Bay rather than just the offshore data. Essentially being able to "drill down" for a more detailed view of a specific area. I assume it is being fed by the ndbc noaa data (?). Are you aware of any sites providing similar data streaming?

ebs,
sure did, and it's great. Unfortunately, all it provides is the coastal info. What I'm looking for is the same thing drilled in to S.F. Bay.
Oops, I stand corrected. It does provide some of the data, but most inside the bay show "n/a" for running data. At least the Alameda bouy is providing wind data. Still, it is better than the old clicking on each bouy method.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
