No wonder twin keels are so popular there.

You are right the Med has very little tidal range. I have not been in tidal situations in Florida. The Bahamas (Abacos) has a range of about 3 feet.
A couple of days ago we had a -3.4 ft low and a +19.1 ft high. Tides in SE Alaska are usually twice a day.

The video below illustrates. The first 1:30 tells the story of Sept 1st last year. Lame excuses follow.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
