The solution is to fix these files so they agree with an official publication somewhat and can be looked up in those with the same name. Leave just a couple of stations that are in the Canadian tide books
,alongside the U.S. ones...say, Port Townsend,and Seatlle leaving them metric for Canadians with their overlapping charts. Maybe I'll post it somewhere, if anybody wants it.
These checked so far agree with US tidebook near enough
today :Cherry Point, FridayHrbr, Bellingham, Anacortes, Port Townsend(...and Canadian metric- no 3 foot difference)... there are more to check.
There will be fewer tides in the area altogether.
Unfortunately, once one starts, it's hard to stop. To include metric and feet on the Canadian side is cumbersome. They are in fact both there, but in the same position so you can't see them. The metric tides are generally more accurate. The foot tides are saltier. If they are both visible, it's kind of cumbersome -looking.
Some have likely noticed that several currents are duplicated as well, being American Datasets + Canadian ones. A bit odd. A little confusing? Like having the British and the Italians writing separate versions of tidebooks for Denmark
