Setting: always set the clock hands before setting the tide hand. The tide indicator hand should be set to high tide when it occures in your area. The exact time can be obtained from official tide tables or the harbour master. The best time for setting is at high tide during a new or full moon. When the clock is reset, reset the tide hand as well as they operate in conjonction with one another.
