Interesting tread this one

so the two i was on about were street (port) and boulder (green), near the looe (selsey bill). i suppose this is borderline, e.g i would have expected it to be flooding into the solent, however the direction on the chart is towards brighton

Jombob, I think you will find that those two bouys are classed as being in the main English Channel and therefore conform to the tide flooding towards the Dover Straits from the west.

There is another on the Caledonian Canal, Loch Oich or Loch Lochy were you exit from a lock going SW and meet a change in channel markers. Really confusing as there is only a red Port post and no green Starboard marker we took a guess went to Port and crawled round the post watching the echo sounder.

Funny you should say that, Pete, I was looking there earlier. On the Caly canal it appears to be south to north.

I go with the flood tide thing. There are a few anomalies but it mostly seems to be the case.

I found the perfect example. Round the back of the Isle of Sheppy the tide floods from both ends so the channel markers switch in the middle. Notice the green marker top left and the red markers bottom right.
