<font color='#333399'>Help please.

Looking for the web address of the tide times etc around the country,
it's on these boards somewhere.
Anybody know where?
Cheers

<font color='#0000FF'>Apparently there's a copyright probelm with UK tidal info and the WXtide 32, the more recent versions don't carry info for the UK 'cos AFAIUI, the UKHO won't allow access to their data

That's right. About a year ago they decided that their tidal predictions were copyrightable.
If anyone is interested I've got full tidal predictions(times, heights, differences) for thousands of areas and at any date you choose to ask it in the future(none of this 7 day crap).

An interesting point on the tidal prediction software available. I recently taught a BSAC dive planning and marshalling (DPM) course. Part of this is obviously planning dives. We planned 2 dives of St Abbs. I sent them away to work out tides, slack, launch times etc and they came back with totally different answers. It seems that some software will predict high tide to be up to 5 hours different to another programme.

Bit of a warning about trusting these things too much I guess, I always look at about 3 now just to check!

Try going to a "search engine" (I use Google or, if you prefer,  www.google.com) and type in TIDE TABLES WHEREVER - subtitute the name of the town you are diving from i/o WHEREVER.

I found my local council web site had the tide tables for my home town + they were adjusted for BST so no need to remember to allow for the hour.
