The Chesapeake Conservancy is proud to support the NOAA Chesapeake Bay Interpretive Buoy System (CBIBS) "smart buoys" project. The CBIBS "smart buoys" collect and transmit real-time weather and water data. CBIBS supports the use and management of a healthy Chesapeake Bay by providing the data and information needed to improve safety, enhance the economy, and protect the environment.
Updated buoy information. Added notifications about late data.

Great app. Needs upgrade for iOS 10.3.3
It's a great app. I have been using it for the past several years, and one of the bouys is right across the Bay from my marina. The down side seems to be Apple's iOS 10.3.3. Ever since that upgrade the app continues to crash and is unusable.
Great info but...
It's great to have this info easily accessible, but if the buoy is offline, please don't keep month-old data showing. It's very confusing- especially since the date/time font size is so very tiny. It would also be nice to know if/when offline bouys are expected to be back up.
Great to boaters
Great information for the recreational boater on the Chesapeake. I hope future versions include preferences so you can set the display order of the data you want to see the most and to change units (knots/mph/m/s, etc.). I highly recommend this app.
