I used Windyty first time this summer where I had net access in SE Alaska and liked it.

Wifey B: We were looking at about half a dozen different forecasts earlier this evening for Lake Michigan. You could easily tell those pulling from NOAA and a couple of others were very close to each other. But what we figured out is that most probably we can expect 3' to 10' with perhaps some up to 13' tomorrow. We had 3-4', 6-10', 7-10'. We'll see what it's really like when we get up tomorrow morning. I've seen hurricane forecasts way different, but not such a hodgepodge of waves and seas. I'm guessing it's a Lake Michigan thing.

In South East Alaska, Windy works well enough to trust it. Yes, in the confines of the narrow inlets there is a lack of indications, however, common sense applied to the direction, velocity color, gust intensity have proven in my use, very close.
We use Windy and the North Coast B.C. North Coast East Dixon Entrence Canada marine forecast with full faith.

Being new to the East Coast and living aboard, We've found Sailflow to be most accurate. They nailed it with Mathew.

I just d/l'ed this app the other day and it's fantastic! Haven't yet used it in conjunction with going out on the boat, but it certainly looks great for instant visualisation of wind vs map. I can see myself using this app a lot for searching out suitable anchorages.
