andpaddlewheel location on your boat For accurate speed and logreadings it is essential that the paddlewheel is calibratedSOG referenceThis is an auto calibration option that uses speed over ground SOGfrom your GPS and compares the average of SOG against theaverage boat speed from the speed sensor for the duration of thecalibration runNote This calibration should be made in calm sea with noeffect from wind or tidal setup Triton2 Operator 1369ADFHJy 1479BDt 2468o 13568j 0134G203Bring the boat up to cruising speed above 5 knots203Select the SOG reference optionWhen the calibration is

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 L-36.com 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.
