I saw a post that Matt D from Urban was out chasing freighter wakes the other day.

Very cool.
Any idea if they are having any luck?
Pretty good apps for tracking ship traffic in the sound.
Having a 6 hour headsup for “swell” is realistic
But every ship is so different.
But draught and speed are listed on most of the vessel tracking sites

That I don't know. I assume, since it is Matt D that yes, they are having success. Might be worth a call or a stop in at urban and talk to the legend himself.

I also know that Rob Casey from Salmon Bay paddle does a ton of ship wake suping, so he would probably have great insight on the ship v wake considerations
