Thread: 44066 toast?

  1. #11
    Is there any info on 44065? Are they planning on repairing it any time soon? When exactly did it go down and what caused it? The thing survived Sandy if I'm not mistaken, yet it broke from something recently? lol. One day I thought the forecast looked off and checked and realized I was reading data from a different buoy. I had been looking at the wrong buoy for probably a week.

    Anyway, any update on it?

    Here's the NDBC service schedule:
    http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/ops.shtml

    44065 is transmitting wind, but not wave data, so most likely the wave guages failed. Its not on the service schedule, so who knows when it will get fixed.

    The buoys have problems all the time. Some times the equipment fails, sometimes the data transfer process fails, sometimes storms breaks things.

    Is there a list of inaccurate buoys or are the ones in service trusted to be accurate?

    If the data is live, I'd assume its accurate. Obviously there is an issue with the wind on 44066, and likely the NDBC doesn't realize it.

    44066 appears to have thawed out!
    The water temp says 50f though. It's usually warmer out there but that seems like a stretch. Maybe a nice, big, fat eddie spun off the Gulf Stream current. If that's the case, I hope it spins all the way to the beach and gives this mid 30's water the boot! Mid 30's makes it hard to last beyond the 2 hour mark, or less without becoming a popsicle.
