New Weather and Tide Site

I built a site offering weather and tide information for US Coastal waters and the Great Lakes plus PR and HI. It has tide tables and graphs, 7 day forecasts with a 7 day wind graph, marine and area observations, satellite, radar, wind forecast observations and history, and basically a lot of information all on one page. One thing people like is that it will show all the buoy stations within X miles (default is 40) giving wind, temperature, wave, and pressure readings all nicely formatted in a simple table.

I am offering it free. It is in pre-release having gone through 4 rounds of beta testing with hundreds of users so I don't expect a lot of bugs. I would like to offer it to the Sail Net community and get your feedback. It will always be free so don't worry about using it and then finding out it is a pay site. I am a sailor and built the site for the sailing community. It is cool that the coast guard is using it when dispatching rescues though. ("I use it to help me save lives").

It is very easy to use, just enter a location and the program figures out all the settings (which can be edited if needed). Please check it out L-36 Weather and Tide.

There is a YouTube Video L-36.com Video

Cool site!

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau

Thank you all for the nice comments.

One thing that isn't obvious but a feature I use every time I go out is the "Printer Page". Follow that link at the top of the page and you can print out a single sheet of paper with the marine forecast, up to 6 tide stations -- one graph and five hourly tide or current, and the 3 day wind history for the selected airport. I stick it in my pocket so I can check the tide when returning to the slip and the current while sailing and see when the wind picked up over the last few days.

If anyone runs into any problems or has any suggestions, please leave a comment by clicking the contact tab on the site.
