    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a download link for a Plymouth (Devonport) Tide Curve?

    Thanks in advance!

    They are also swotting for a YM and want to compare the calculations against real results, using the local graph.

    Ah! First lesson for his YM then is to find it himself and present it to you for his training!

    Wouldn't someone "swotting for a YM" have the books already?

    Mine are all on the boat, I'm afraid.

    Rule of twelfths is pretty accurate when no access to actual curves. But obviously not for ports with double high waters etc. But that doesn't apply to Plymouth.

    Ask Sarabande. His mooring's access pontoon, at the corner of the Tamar/Lynher Rivers, quite regularly goes aground, just before the time he wants to use it.....
