Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?
Guys let's take an example.
On 9/15/2013, Slack at the Brooklyn Bridge is at 00:18, Max Flood is at 03:50;
On 9/15/2013, Max Flood in Hell Gate is at 05:30 with Slack (at High) being at 07:57.
The direction of flood current at Hells Gate is 050 Degrees True.
Are you telling me if you leave the Battery at 00:00 on 9/15/2013, you will get a foul (i.e. Ebb) current before you exit into Long Island Sound? With a flood current it takes at most 2.5 hours to transit from the Battery to the entrance of LIS.
There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.
