  1. I have been using an old DOS based programme called "ShowTide" for the past 20 years or so. It is suitable for anywhere in the world as long as you have the tidal harmonic for the location that you are intersted in. The software was written by Dr John Amson, of Fife in Scotland , and even though it is a DOS programme I find that it still works with Windows XP. It has a graphic display for any 3 days and will show the tides in "real time" if you, so wish, or will even prepare a tide table for any month or year that you are interested in, provided that you have the tidal harmonics for that particular location. It also will work out the highest and lowest tides during any period that you choose, future or past. It also gives the rising and setting times for the moon and sun. Tidal harmonics can be purchased from various sources in printed form, or possibly via the Internet, maybe free. This latter source though, I'm not so sure about. Technically, from a computer aspect, it is not very "up to date" being a DOS programme, BUT............. as it has so much to offer, I am still prepared to continue to put up with it's short commings. I have tried other programmes that are around, but none, in my eyes, come up to the standard of this "old fashioned" software. The programme was NOT FREE when I obtained it many years ago, but Dr Amson was kept intouch with me and sent me many changes and improvements over the years. If anyone is interested I can give you his e-mail address. I have no commercial interests in this programme
