    Hello Mark. After reading this posting only recently, I am wondering if the discovery of the “Harrison #4 clock” that finally got recognized by The King’s honorarium years ago, indirectly is helpful in your tide-readings? Now I am not a latitude/longitude knowledgeable lady, but I’m reading first-time author Geraldine Deruiter’s book entitled “All Over the Place,” and she has an interesting chapter re The Harrison Clocks/London museum. (And I enjoyed viewing a great related museum exhibit in Mystic/Connecticut in 2015.) Good Luck… with your play directing duties.

    Judy, I learned about the Harrison #4 from Dava Sobel’s excellent book, Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time. I’d not thought of using it for tides. These days, we use a Mac-based tide program called “Mr. Tide,” and a tide clock, the workings of which I’ve never investigated. I will have to read All Over the Place as well, it sounds interesting. Thank you!
