Re: Near-shore tide what to expect. "Need some Guidance"

Go to the site "Deepzoom.com" that provides info on tides and currents. You can enter any date and run a time-lapsed animation that should provide a good idea of what you're up against. There is a current station all the way out to your "R8" which is 6-7 miles out from the inlet.

When you first load the site, it defaults to the Pacific NW. Just zoom out and back into your area of Port Royal Sound.

I just joined, so I can't paste links yet. Just Google the text below and select the first link.

Very nice. Just looked at Beaufort NC, an area I am more familiar with. Thanks.

Hi Curtis
Unfortunately I'm not living there yet. Will be a couple more years before I can cut the chains in the northeast. At this point we go down in the spring and fall for vacation. I brought my 25' center console down for water access.

If you want the NOAA info (which is probably what the DeepZoom app uses) try this

Do you have tidal diamonds on your charts, they will give you the direction and speed of the tide for every hour.

LT,

You are obviously conscientious, detailed in your planning and precise in your calculations. Just remember the old saying about plans in war -- they never survive first contact with the enemy. Same is true in sailing. Pick a nice day and do it. Have a plan, but be prepared to change it as you go along. Enjoy the sail.
