I'm curious about what part of the marine forecast other Whittier boaters pay attention to. For example, the forecast for Passage Canal is fairly straight forward; however, when do you start focusing on the PWS forecast? The forecast for this weekend has Passage Canal looking great with variable winds 10kts with seas of 2 feet. However, the PWS forecast is calling for some fairly nasty weather. Is Port Wells likely to experiance the 7 foot seas on Sunday as the forecast predicts or would that be more out by Naked or Lone Island?
