Default Big tide changes

Hall's Harbor, Nova Scotia http://www.novascotiawebcams.ca/hallsharbour/ Those boats must take a beating. Amazing how fast the tide turns there. Here on the Gulf Coast 2' change is big.

Wow, that is incredible. Why bother painting the bottom when the boat is out of the water 12hrs a day and I assume the rest of the time the are running.

Yep, a live cam. The tide changes 20 plus feet from high to low tide. The trawlers are sittin' on the ground half the time.

My wife and I went to Hall's Harbour and stayed in a little cabin. It has a great little lobster pound in the village.

One thing is for certain, me as a diver isn't going to find anything of value in the bulk of that channel.

Holy cow, I looked at it, all the boats were floating... went out, washed the car, came back in - and half the canal is dry!

It's a cool site. During the winter during a prolonged low tide and a snowstorm, the boats were sittin' in the snow. You can change it to 1 frame/2seconds for more video action.

I don't think it is bow heavy, I think it is the keel on the ground making it look that way.

Just a guess here, I think it has more to do with the fisheye lens on the cam.

The nature of the convex lens (fisheye) will pull the horizontal lines into a circle. My guess would be that is a 35mm lens....it shows more field of view than a 1:1 (50 mm) lens but the degree of distortion isn’t that overwhelming.

Maybe so but if you look right now the black boat behind it is now resting the same way. There is no freaking water!
