What happened to NWCruising.net?
 
I have used the distance tables on that website for years. Tried to check it today and got an error message. Anyone know what happened to it, or where a similar resource could be found?

Only thing I know is the domain is showing as "pending transfer." How long has it been missing? My thoughts are perhaps will resurface soon.

I don't know what they had there, but many distances are shown here.

https://nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/publ.../distances.pdf

Table 31 is for much of the area.

The time and distance chart on NWCruising.net is much better. I printed it out and it went on for pages, put it in a binder and keep it at the boat. The reason it is better is that there are many more places listed from Olympia to SE Alaska.

Well, it's not better at the moment as it's not reachable. Not better for other places either. Of course a local time and distance chart is more complete. I just offered an option if it doesn't resurface. The site is now resolving to justhost.com.

Yeah, fortunately I had printed out some of the pages. It was really excellent for the Puget Sound area. It would be nice if someone could take over those pages.

Thanks for the link BandB. Iíll take a look.

Do you have shareable PDFs?

Accessible with March data through Wayback Machine. Maybe this will help some of you.

You may be able to find what you need using the internet wayback machine. Here is the last capture of the website: https://web.archive.org/web/20210329...wcruising.net/

It doesn't always catch everything that was on a site, but sometimes it does. Good luck!

soin2la 07-23-2021 10:52 AM

Excellent find BandB, thank you.
The Wayback Machine, a blessing and a curse.

My understanding is that the original owner, Capt. Carl Tenning, is/was trying to sell the site (at least the domain) and information. I would imagine that he's found the information to be of value, but not necessarily the .net domain. Wouldn't be surprised if the Waggoner Cruising Guide is looking into purchasing it...

And the .com version of nwcruising is for sale for $2400. Waggoner would certainly be logical. Of course, each day down lessens the value.

https://nwcruising.net expired on Feb 22 of 2021. use https://nwcruising.us/ now

The distances between ports is interesting, but I can lay down a route in Coastal Explorer and learn everything I need to know including rocks and currents. I canít say Iíd ever use if it was available.

Inadvertently unsubscribed from this thread and hoping this will bring it back.

Our use SALISHSEACRUISING.COM Nautical Miles in the Pacific Northwest, Olympia to Queen Charlotte Strait and avoid the redirect and future expiring.

Though I know Dick about how it works, I suspect it was just a web address change. Domain? Is that what you call it?

Apparently they owned several domains and just let the .net go. I don't know beyond that.
