    Does anyone know if there is some sort of archive for bouy data online? I dont think swell info has any such resource

    No, but if you find one, please let us know. That's a dataset I've wanted to play with for a hot minute.

    You can find recent data for each station on NDBC
    http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41002

    but also historical for each station is found by scrolling to the bottom of the station page and clicking on "Historical Data and Climatic Summaries" link.

    http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_his...?station=41002

    OR

    If you don't know the station number use the classic maps >> historical to choose your region of interest.

    Hope this helps.

    Sweet! FYI 7zip will decompress gzip formats, you can download it here: http://www.7-zip.org/

    You can also get it through the weather underground's marine weather section.

    click your region, then a buoy.
    There you can select a date (it only goes back so far).
    It gives you a nice graph and table.

    or from the magicseaweed.com site that we all know and love =) Data is questionable, but the output is very easy to read.
