What is the average tidal range and how does that impact the MLW and water access to the pier?

Unlike in Maine, the  Chesapeake Bay (and tributary) tides vary by a foot or two most days. However the tides are not your problem – the wind is the problem. Northerly winds in the winter and fall can drop the water level by three feet in addition to the low tide! Summer southerly winds can raise it the same amount. Storms coming up the Chesapeake Bay can bring water surges six feet or more above normal! There is a simple way to tell what the “average low water” level is by looking at the pilings – do you know what it is? And, if a serious storm is on the way, listen to the NOAA weather for updates so you can take care of your boat in an extreme tide!

Thanks to Charlie, Reid, Sarah and the rest of the team. Seller, Warren Drive, Annapolis read more...
