Conditions this weekend


I'm trying to get to grips with checking out the wind and seas before heading out. Got a pass from the wife this weekend but looking at the different weather apps; getting different reports on conditions.


Willy - 15-30km/h

Predict Wind - suggests windy saturday morning and then mostly under 15km/h

Fishranger - 25-30km/h on sat, and 15 and below on sunday


Who to believe!!  

Only planning to head out to the shallows for some squid and whiting out of Woodman Point.

I find BOM - Meteye best of all sites

very accurate. I dont think other sites even have all the weather measuring instruments that BOM has (I could be wronmg though) so I presume all other sites use BOM weather info anyway. Just looked at Meteye, Sat and sun look shit at the moment, bit of a break in the wind midday both days check it out for your self tells you swell info also hoipe this helps.

Isnt there a couple of different sources the weather sites get there info from? eg, Windy uses one and Seabreeze uses another. One is usually correct. Cant go wrong looking at both and then comparing it to the perth local waters forecast this works for me.


Rust stains, small gelcoat/fibreglass repairs, bilge cleaning etc

Grannys beetle in a match box

If the beetle is on its back with all its legs kicking, stay home, if beetle is on its feet and moving around, safe to go out.
