To see if it's worth your bother,the Readme is:
"This harmonic.idx is changed to show meters in British Columbia
tides...some stations have no metric eqivalent and remain as feet.
Skerry Bay has been relocated to its correct position.
1)find the tcdata folder in OpenCPN's program files folder.
2)rename the original "HARMONIC.IDX" to "originalHARMONIC.IDX" or whatever...
3)copy this revised HARMONIC.IDX into the folder.
4)..possible nuisance? I've only noticed this as a problem ONCE after some heavy rewrites and the changes wouldn't show...) MAYBE best to find the "station_mru.dat" in OpenCPN's program Data folder and rename it too,as oldstation_mru.dat before restarting OpenCPN
.OpenCPN will write a new one as metric stations in your area when she closes.
