    Incoming G-9100-1

    Finally pulled the trigger on a "real" Gulfman! At least this should tide me over until we start seeing the new Gulfman hit the market Tide graph won't do me much good living in Minneapolis, but since when is this addiction about practicality?

    Congrats
    The tide graph is only one of the best features on this baby.
    I love mine so much its my daily driver.
    It weighs nothing, you'll forget its on your wrist.
    Its also the most accurate that I own. I set it manually, hacked it with the atomic clock http://www.time.gov/timezone.cgi?Eastern/d/-5/java
    about three weeks ago and its still set to the exact second.
    It's not the most elaborate but its one of my favorites.
    If you need help setting the tide, let someone know. Its pretty accurate for the tide. If you have any lakes or estuaries in Minnesota that you fish, it'll come in handy. Enjoy it

    P.S. The G9100-1 has a more accurate tide graph then the G7900b and the new GW9100. The only way to compensate the Solar Atomic versions of the Rescue or Gulfman is to advance the time based upon the 1st high tide time. The new ones will not let you set the lunitidal interval with manual adjustments. Its factored into the home city data and that is never 100% accurate for anywhere except some areas of the home city that is entered. When the 1st high tide is adjusted, the second high tide will automatically follow based upon the algorithm in the watches eprom. If the first tide is off, the second will also be off. It sounds complicated but its really not that difficult to figure them out. The benefit of the G9100-1 is that you can set the lunitidal interval manually with a little Kentucky Windage for your particular area along with your longitude. Its mostly spot on when you check your local tide settings via the internet at sites such as http://www.saltwatertides.com/pickpred.html or http://tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov/index.shtml

    There are only a few instances over the last month where my Tide Graph was slightly off.

    Wow! Great Info! I really appreciate you taking the time to make sure I get the most out of my Gulfman! I had heard similiar things elswhere about the g-7900, but never in such complete words. If I have any question about setting the tide graph when it comes in, you are my guy! Thanks again
