Sherer Report: Links to Weather, Surveys, Buoys, Tides in the ICW

Once again, Bob and Ann Sherer, authors of 2017 ICW Cruising Guide and their popular blog, http://fleetwing.blogspot.com/, generously share their research with our readers.  This is an excellent listing of information sites pertaining to the Intracoastal. Definitely a posting to save!

 

I compiled a set of links in north to south order:  READ MORE!

–  Weather buoys that give wind and wave heights along our ICW route
–  Shoaling areas I’ve found by examining ACOE Surveys, mile by mile starting at Norfolk. It’s not just the inlets where we have surveys available for problem areas. It  takes some digging to find all of them but here they are. ACOE uses the same link for each section of the ICW so the link provided will always bring up the latest survey. 
 
The above sites are handy in doing a quick check on conditions before transiting an area. You might want to bookmark the page in your browser.
 
I’ve also thrown in some popular weather sites. 
 
Here’s the link to the page of links:

And this from Buddy DeRyder, a friend of the Sherers:

Thanks Bob,
You may want to consider adding the York Spit buoy
http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=44072
As it is on your rhumb line from Windmill Pt to Hampton and its added value is sea state height/period which you don’t get from the York River rear range station.
It is a fairly new yellow buoy and does not yet show on NOAAs website composite pictorial graphic
We decided to not go south this winter as I didn’t get accomplished what I wanted to get done and ICW (& Keys) conditions are not to my liking as I have been through all that before. On the positive side you don’t have a real worry with wrapping a prop on old hidden roof tarps blown off from previous hurricanes and Ophelia is way offshore! But buoy location is a worry to resolve.
I moved my boat to our new F docks near the public piers and having Don Gulliver doing some AC work this week… he worked on your system a few years back…
Give a shout if you have a need.
Best Wishes,
Buddy
