Tide Plotter for P.C.'s

Hi Everyone, I have just found a bargain piece of softwar,

A graphical tide plotting facility. It was advertised in one of the fishing comics thought it might be useful.

There is a free demo download to try before you buy!

It offers the option to plot tides for any main harbour for the u.k & display in picture format. Very easy to use and read. It will cover some foreign ports aswell. You can also look up tide tables in any time zone i.e U.T or BST. Click a button print outs.

It only costs 9.99. You can buy online and download direct to your pc. all in a minute or two.

Cheers for Now

Web Site:- www.belfieldsoftware.co.uk

p.s. I have no vested interest in this company, for all you cynics out there

Ah, ah (as Alan Partridge would say). I beat you to it. See: http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...t=Tide+plotter previous posting.

I can thoroughly recomend this product. I have it on my laptop which I take up to Scotland with me. A very useful bit of kit. Very good for 'The Great Orkney SIB Expedition 2003!

Tides

You do know that the UKHO has Easy Tide. Free.
Just thought I'd mention it.

Yup Easytide is FREE, but:
1) You only get up to a 6 day prediction, with www.belfieldsoftware.co.uk you get a full 12 months, plus a host of other clever things you can do with it.
2) For easytide you need to be on the internet. www.belfieldsoftware.co.uk can be run on your laptop without internet connection
3) www.belfieldsoftware.co.uk it only costs 9.99!

Hey, is this the same thing we are talking about? Sounds like something George Doubleya would be interested in!

Keith (You're very sensitive) Hart

I wasn't comparing it. Just thought some people might not know about UKHO site. That's all.

Sensitive moi! No, no, no. That is just my sense of humour (sometimes I don't even get it myself).

Also I really do think that 'Tide Plotter' is the bargain of the century.

Talking of FREE stuff though. Subscription to 'The Great Orkney SIB Expedition 2003' newsletter is FREE.
