Leda II

David James first sailed on Leda II before he was born. His dad had the boat built as the last L-36 built in the production yard at Chapman and Kalajian in Los Angeles. The one unusual thing that his dad requested was the beautiful teak deck. The boat was built extra strong for the San Francisco Bay. David and his family sailed on the boat while he was growing up and he kept the boat when his dad passed away. He raced it extensively and won the PHRF series in 1995.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
