    lumpy,

    when we switch into hurricane mode, the model is based off of GFDL hurricane model winds, which only go out to 126 hours or so. When, we are not using the hurricane model, then it will show 180 hours. I have plans to offer both wave maps, which can be helpful to compare the GFS driven model compared to the GFDL.

    yes, Ike swells were coming through for a while, so the hurricane model was able to better capture those.
