ambianceack is on a distinguished road
I did pick up a 2010 Eldridge and the estimated current velocities shown at different stages of the tide are the same as 2009. Obviously just the time of the tides, moon and sun change. I can also get tidal information from several sources that can be used to determine ebb and flow. I agree that current direction can be easily determined but when I am sailing it is easier to plan to sail with a 2.3 knot current than buck it, at least in my 34' sabre. I think there is a lot of good information in Eldridge, I just do not need much of the same info year to year. I will probably only update every few years, unless I can get online like at ACK Weather: Nantucket Weather, Wind, Waves, Webcams, Radar, Tides, Currents and Buoy Data
