  5. See you in the carpark.... I wonder if Chas actually made any extra sales of his book from our lovely Lord Ian's interesting advertising.

  8. The "Good old handicaps hey?" is no longer visible...... Perhaps they did some tidying up from their end as well?
  9. Looking into the details I wonder if there is an adjustment for average climatic factors. In the details for the Hobart tide gauge, it mentions "Doodson’s method Sa and Ssa from a long period analysis (39.6 years) of Hobart (1960-2010) for the 2013 tide predictions". Maybe the initial predictions are based on the astronomical data about the moon and then fine-tuned to better fit the "long period analysis" as mentioned??
  10. hmmm not so sure about some of this: - as best as I know, prevailing wind and barometric pressure are not factors in tide prediction. - there has been a tide gauge in Hobart since 1889 (I think) so the economic necessity/accuracy argument is not valid - double entry? Do you mean an actual mistake in the tide tables?

  11. I love a good Tassie photo!
