Interesting that the rise and fall between high and low doesn't vary much in the whole navigable length of the Yare and Waveney compared with the Bure. Is that something to do with the narrowness of the Bure at Yarmouth?
I use these from the bottom of the page here and just put in the dates for each month and then print each month off and keep them in a folder on the boat:- Like these No rise and fall tide heights but I have them on another sheet.
The older I get... The better I was....!!

webntweb: I think you'll find that the lack of rise & fall on the Yare & Waveney is down to Breydon Water acting as a giant reservoir. As the water lowers at GY it draws a lot of water from Breydon and, naturally, it is some time before the upper reaches "feel" the same pull. There is so much water there that it tends to fulfill the demand from the low water at GY with a much lower draw on the Yare & Wensum. The Bure doesn't have the benefit of a large mass of water at it's lower levels.
