This page is intended for fishers, fishermen, surfers, kayakers, canoers, boaties, muckers about in boats, pirates, port authorities,
beachcombers, lifesavers, sailors and sailers of yachts, captains of nuclear wessels and all maner of folk who interact with the sea,
ocean, estuaries, islands, and atolls, and who wish to know about tide predictions, tide forcasts, tide tables, and who are also interested in
swell forecasts, weather forecasts, and next week's lotto numbers.
Lighthouse keepers may also wish to know the height of water in their basements - which we can supply in metres (or meters)
or feet. Drowning is excluded since it's entirely possible to drown at low tide, high tide, or anytime in
between with equal effect.
In case you are wondering, this little blurb is to add the keywords to improve the targeting and
indexing by certain bots and engines that scan this web page. The tide graph doesn't have much text and the bots aren't clever
at figuring out what this page is about.
Ok, Who else? Coastguards, lifeboat operators, and people who like to have weddings and get married on the beach (we get a lot of those).
Chandlers who get away from their Nautical almanacs, fish finders, their sails
and compasses, their radars and shackles, their marine charts and datums, and all of that boating paraphernalia that they sell,
might use tide charts too if they ever get to sail, or canoe, or drown. Boatbuilders, with their fibreglass, outboard motors and
rudders. Barnacles and anti-fouling paint, propellers and masts, mainbraces and booms, mainsails and spinnakers, keels and wheels.
My apologies to any sea-farers (or ferries) that I may have forgotten.
Did I mention marriage and weddings on the beach, with brides and
grooms, bridesmaids, and the best man. Tide tables are also useful for getting across stretches of water that flood at high tide
and get you stranded in a cave, or on the rocks. Up the creek without a paddle I believe is the correct term, with certain embellishments.
