I'm glad some of you found the thread of interest. In this electronic age there are still skills we all should probably know without necessarily getting into the intricacies of full on celestial.
I always use the official government tides and current tables in a paper format. They do not have disclaimers.
We still teach students how to determine tides and currents at secondary ports and stations. On my trips around Vancouver Island, tide and current calculation sheets are taped to the walls.
