Re: Miss Liberty vs the landlubbing haters!
I'm really not good with basic math, might be a learning disability or years of booze, but I like to get a second opinion ... I'm trying to work out when it will go from a very low tide to a very high tide at Anclote Key, Florida.

Clearwater seems to be the closest tide station to you.
Click on tide predictions and/or extremes on the left
Pick your date and just read the tide for that day.
If this doesn't make sense just ask a question or two and we can explain how to read the graph but if you study it a bit it you may be able to make it out.
No math required.
Sorry for you loss.
Many of the guys and gals here have decades of boating experience. We have doctors, lawyers, accountants and probably every trade possible.
You might have the best luck focusing on specific questions rather than your story. What happened is done anyway and if you need information this is the place to come.
If you have multiple questions you will get better results if you start a new thread for each specific question.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
