I have been on rescue duty in me bath when a force six has been blowing in my pants and I reckon a F6 is just under 2.8m

A wave height of 1.5m is a F4.

Might be wrong!

I have seen some pretty big waves with a Force 0 - think they are caused by this "tides" thing..................

Those waves would surely have been ground swell caused by wind possibly thousands of miles away.

If they were peaking looking more like chop then this would have either been caused by shallow water or coming into contact with a strong tidal current. this usually happens round headlands where for no apparent reason the sea will sudenly chop up as you round the headland and then be calm again the other side.

id love to have a degree in fluid mechanics to tell you why this happens but im afraid i dont sorry

As we are skirting around making a fool of ourselves, or at least someone is, I've just sent an Email to about 5000+ people and left the "Read Receipt" on.

My Inbox is going crazy. Even though I've "Recalled" the message I still appear to get a message telling me its been recalled from each person

Sorry to dissapoint you fellas- but wave hight is not only a function of windforce.
Top line states there is a windforce of 5 to 6 with a waveheight between 125 and 150 cms.

Thats what i said - you have to take fetch into consideration it takes a few miles to whip up a chop so within a several miles of a sheltered coastline you will see smaller waves your wind is northerly so anything other than a northerly facing shoreline will result in reduced fetch and therefore reduced wave hieght.
