to far out in the week to know now, The forecasts for seas out past a few days is usually very unreliable, but they are calling for 1-3 foot seas. In a general sense the seas do not calm down much till the doldrums of summer set in and the springtime fronts quit passing thru and kicking things up.

here you go. this buoy is a bit closer to petronius but regardless, same area (64 nautical miles south of dauphin island)

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=42040


here is the ram powell sea conditions:

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=42364

and this is the transocean marianas (one of those drill ships that looks more like a rig than an actual ship); it's right to the southeast of marlin rig

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=42881

these sites are pretty good about updating every day or every other day or so.
