chicken or the egg?

fodao - I would make sure you have a place for the boat before you buy it. If that means giving someone a deposit now for a mooring, I think it would be a smart move.

If you're looking for open ocean conditions, I don't think you find much real time data. You'll probably have to work with GRIB (http://www.globalmarinenet.net/grib.htm) prediction data.
