Does anyone have any info regarding the bouys and when they are expected to be up and running again? Are we looking at months, weeks, years? So annoying to not be able to check bouy 44025. I'm no longer able to do the ol' 530 in the morning wake up call to check the bouy.

between october and november... it's ridiculous how long this is taking. people are going to be all, 'JUST GO CHECK IT DUDE WTF BALH BALH OLD SCHOOL BS" - it's not about that. it's more about seeing swell direction, wave height/period and knowing whether to stay local or go drive, especially at 5:30am when the cams aren't up.
If every forecast page went away, it would't bother me one bit. I'd probably welcome it. But this damn buoy being out is brutal. Someone earlier made the point about it being such a busy shipping lane, you'd think they'd be on it ASAP. It's kind of mind boggling.
