Do we not need to know what day we are doing this on as our depth sounder is measuring actual depth not charted depth and therefore to properly navigate we need to know what the tide hights our around these times. If that is not needed, I don't see how being at the lat/lon of 16.5'N, 53.5'W at 110T we could hit the 4 fathom shoal.

Please clarify.

Thanks

That is a very good question, and we should have been more specific. I will add a note in tech support. The key here is the table of depth versus time has presumably been corrected for draft and tide... so you do not need to know the date.

Check your plots again. Note this is a true heading. Seems the answer is right on the check i made.
