I recently tested for my 200 Ton Master. Passed the deck general with flying colors and the chart plotting didn’t pose any problem at all, but tides and currents ate my lunch! Predicting the height of tide at any time or the velocity and direction at any time was like hitting a brick wall.
Do any of y’all have an internet source or a place where I can get a tutorial on this subject. I had never failed a test in my whole life…until Wednesday. I have 60 days to retest, but I don’t care to sit in class with the same instructor. I’d rather do it on my own.
Any help would be appreciated. I don’t want to make but one more trip to Morgan City between now and April 20th. It’s a long haul.
