WARNING

Having posted it occured to me that I should add that "The Rule of Twelveths" assumes normal tidal behaviour and follows kind of a "Sine Curve".

It should therefore NEVER be use in areas such as the Solent, Poole Harbour or any other area that experiences Double Highs or Double Lows.

Don't forget if you can't moor at Thorpe Green you could always moor at Commisioners Cut and walk back to the Reedcutters

As ChrisGHB points out the rule of the twelfths is good as a general guide but like all aspects of tidal predictions is subject to local variations and oddities. As such it should be used as a useful indicator only.

Paladine - Thank you for the link to the table, I am sure I will find this useful.
Chris (Chris HGB) - I hope you enjoy your trip to Melbourne, we live on the other side of the country in WA. If you can find a link to the rule of twelfths I will have a look at it.
Alan (Boat Mad) - Thank you for the thought of commissioners cut, we have walked this in the past, but my wife now has mobility problems and would not be able to walk that distance.
Dave (Terry Tibbs) - Yes we need another Broads fix, it is a terrible affliction this Broads bug when it bites, costs me thousands of $$$

Thanks to all

Regards
Dave Downunder

Hi David,

You're luck WA is my favourite place in the whole world!, Kalbarri and Coral Bay in particular, love the diving at Coral Bay and Exmouth.

However back to your question, mooring as we do at Swancraft next to Silverline, I like to keep a close eye on the tides there. I now use this website:-  http://tides.willyweather.co.uk/ee/norfolk/brundall.html  
It shows both when and by how much the tides will rise and fall. From my observations they appear quite accurately mirror what actually happens  Playful Wink .

Hope we get to meet you this visit.

John.

Kind regards, John(Captain
Joshie), Jo & Toby.

G'Day Chris and John

Thank you for the web links I will have a close look to see if they can help me.

Kalbarri used to be our family holiday destination when our daughters were at school, we would usually go for 2 weeks staying at the Murchison view appartments, we really like Kalbarri, I have only been to Coral Bay once for snorkelling too and really enjoyed it.

Our next broads trip is not until July next year and we will be hiring through Silverline again so there is a chance we may get to meet.

Regards
Dave Downunder
