Hi, my name is Vince and I run "Irish Sea Cruises" I use a Red Bay 11.5 mtr full cabin, twin diesel RIB.
My question is, does anyone have any practical, useful info on the use of TIDAL SOFTWARE, to include ,flows, direction etc etc. If its available also weather info. I would like to link this info to my existing instruments, 10in Raymarine radar/plotter, Navtex +6 etc. Ideally plot a route from A to B, give it a departure time, and it returns with, ideal departure time and best route allowing for tide etc. I obviously use my RIB commercially and cover basically the Irish Sea. I envisage the tidal software would be most useful not only for economy but also timing and comfort.
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to all Mariners.
