Not quite... it predicts the highest and lowest tides until 2005 - useful, though, for planning the Brambles or Goodwin Sands cricket matches!

There are two high tides each day, but two highest tides every year.

Keep up the "Young" prefix, it suits me

You can't launch at all until you've got your boat!

Very good!!!

Actually I have just been today to book a mooring for it - didn't really want to keep it on the water as I will have to keep taking it our for petrol.

My local marina is full and expensive so am going to use a nice little harbour - only trouble is it is one of the dogiest stretches of water anywhere and the tidal access is only 2.5hrs either side - still it is cheap and secure!!!
