Hi, my names Poo Stance and I'm a chart addict.
I knocked this up the other week. You need to put the two together in some sort of word publisher (any better suggestions?).
If you put them in word - click on the compass picture, then open the toolbox and click 'choose transparent colour', then click on the white background of the compass. You should now be able to drag the compass over the wave buoy locations and still see the map below. And if you increase the size of the compass you have some kind of surf tool which is probably quite useless.
Anyway. If you're using the WWWIII spectral bulletins (http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/waves/WEB_P/ ... 62107.bull
) you can hash out a rough idea of where the bulk of the swells are heading.
What I really wanted when I started fiddling with this was a mouse pointer graphic of a compass with the degrees on it. This ended up being easier to do.
Anyway, if anyone wants the slightly larger pics PM me with your email.
And what happened to MSW nearshore charts?
