Nice idea when it works

This information is really slow to appear, when it appears. Some of the buoys cause the site to shut down when you click on the name. This would be a great teaching tool if it worked consistently.

Very disappointing

Downloaded to see the winds from yesterday’s 29+ knots around the Bay. The Annapolis buoy is apparently not yet back in the water, so no data there. And when I click on Potomac, it remains stuck on the Annapolis data page, giving me nothing from any other station.
If this is only a seasonal app, please add a help section to clearly identify that status. Otherwise it is just poor programming with lots of bugs.

Missing Information.

Would have given this a five stars but they removed the oxygen level information. Very important when planning when and where to fish.
