HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., July 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For nearly 50 years, the Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) has worked tirelessly to provide boaters the services and resources needed to enjoy their time on the water. From discounts on transient slips to world-class towing services and boat insurance, BoatUS members know that it pays to belong. Thanks to a recent partnership with Buoyweather.com, BoatUS now offers its Members yet another resource, with access to accurate marine forecasts right on its website, www.BoatUS.com.
"As all boaters know, weather is the number one determining factor when planning a day on the water or an extended trip. Through this partnership, we can provide all BoatUS and BoatUS Angler Members with accurate marine weather, both inshore and offshore, as well as on the Great Lakes," says Charlie Levine, Editor and Publisher of Buoyweather. "This is a great partnership for Buoyweather.com. It seems like my family has always had a membership to BoatUS and it's gotten us out of a lot of jams. We're honored to be working with BoatUS."
Members can access weather by logging on to their individualized 'my.BoatUS.com' page, and then it's as simple as pointing to a spot on a map to get an up-to-the-minute, three-day forecast. The weather widget contains all of the information boaters need to safely enjoy their time on the water, including wind, the latest swell size, wave period, weather radar, current, sea-surface temperature and access to the most comprehensive list of weather buoys on the Internet. Users can set up a list of favorite locations for easy searching, as well as customizable weather alerts.
In addition to no-cost three-day forecasts, BoatUS members receive a 10 percent discount on a Buoyweather Premium Membership which includes a seven-day forecast and full access to Buoyweather's global forecasting tools both online and via Buoyweather's free mobile app for iTunes and Android devices.
The partnership with BoatUS has helped the Buoyweather staff expand their weather models. "Buoyweather provides accurate marine forecasts for every ocean on the globe, but our team of forecasters and developers have expanded the model to cover inshore waterways such as the Chesapeake Bay and Puget Sound to meet the needs of BoatUS Members," Levine says. "Working with BoatUS has helped us improve our product and provide over half a million boaters with accurate marine weather. We're looking forward to a long relationship with this great organization."
