There is a very good article by Sam Landsman on his “Slowboat.com” site dealing with weather forecast interpretation and analysis for the PNW. It deals with building an interpretation to use for making “go/no go” decisions and in Sam’s usually careful and detailed way he provides links to some great resources, and shows the methods for using them.

Here is a link to the site.

For those who boat on the BC coast, or Salish Sea, or are heading North to Alaska (Sing along here with Johnny Horton) this info is worth taking a good look at.

For those who don't know Sam, he is a great guy, an accomplished C-BRAT (Has done both SE Alaska and Outside Vancouver Island on his 22 Cruiser Retriever) and now leads flotillas to SE AK.

Thanks Harvey for this post of Slowboat. Lots of information, pictures and webinar material to read. The authors have done a good job to make the site easy to navigate as they share from many years of travel in the Inside Passage and elsewhere.

You are welcome. Sam and friends, (There are 2 couples involved,) are great folks, with tons of knowledge and experience. Much of the info is applicable to C-Dory cruising style, except that we can out run them if we need to Wink

And, there is always room to dream.
