Detailed Puget Sound wind / current forecasts?

I know I've found a site in the past that showed very detailed wind / current forecasts for the Sound, graphically, but can't find it for the life of me. What do you folks use for weather forecasts sailing out of Seattle / Edmonds? The NOAA forecasts seem to be slow to update and address the whole Sound at once, which I've seen isn't always how things turn out.

SailFlow.com - WA - puget sound Wind Data

Washington State Ferry Weather

Those are the three I use most. Along with the link to the port of edmonds which has a current weather site too. I have 7-10 other links that a member of the club gave a how to predict weather and winds, I do not use them all, I think I still have the paper work.

For currents, I have a yellow book, that shows currents thru a period of time thru about 12 hrs. Not sure if anything is online like it.
