    Many thanks Sandy, I have PM'd you.

    I do have an almanac on my boat with this graph, buts it has been scribbled on and rubbed out several times so a bit scrappy now.

    That's really close to my mooring! My mooring is just across the other side of the Tamar next to Bull Point.

    The reason why i'm looking for the curve or graph for Devonport is I have been asked to teach someone the traditional way of finding an accurate time of touching the bottom when drying out against a wall.
    They are also swotting for a YM and want to compare the calculations against real results, using the local graph.
    First thing is that the Devonport data is for the tide gauge at Devonport, not 1/2 mile up or down the river.
    Here's real and predicted for Devonport:

    Historic data can be seen by clicking on 'custom dates'.

    There's quite a difference in time as you head up the river. The important thing for his YM is to be aware of that. When it turns also depends on how much rain there is coming down the river. I did my YM many years ago partly up the Tamar and after flooding on Dartmoor.
