On the water is ok if you have bluechart. I just thought having it on my watch would be nice . Many is the time Iam working and wondering what the tide will be like for that evening or the next day . looking at a watch would help pass the day .
On my phone would be second choice as we don't always see "eye to eye"

I use "Pocket PC Tides" from http://www.neptune-navigation.com/ on a PDA/ phone and have found it to be very good for planning purposes (and accurate to a couple of cm on the day).

I have never spent more than 25 on a watch , the casio will do me . Problem is the watch is only ever as good as the strap these days when that wears out I end up with a new one because i can't find a new strap that fits and doesn't cost half the price of a new watch .
Thats if it hasn't kissed a sander or hammer etc in its short life in my workshop

Forget the watches, I bought a Dewalt XRP 18v cordless the other day. Superb.

I find that it's best to back the clutch off when working with leather.

Hang on, now I'm confused. Are you saying that you keep a cordless under the pillow?
