howdy all, My 12yo boy is really starting to show an interest in the ocean but can't quite get his head around the way the tides work. I've had a go a explaining the everyday port phillip heads tide charts that you can get from surf and fishing shops, but its a of bit info overload for him. Its hard to see the way the moon, sun cause different tidal heights from a bunch of numbers. Was wondering if anyone knows where i can buy, or download and print, a poster size tide chart that shows the rise and fall in table or wave form, with moon phases etc...ideally the sort of poster style thing i can stick on the back of the dunny door for him.(worked a treat for his time tables!)
