Answer to last week’s question

18 March, 2021

A drying height is the height that the bar (or rock etc.) would show above the water as measured from chart datum.
Tides are also measured from chart datum. Therefore the height of tide required would be the total of F
1. drying height of bar,
2. depth of draught and
3. clearance required.
In this case the height of tide required is 0.8m + 1.0m + 0.5m = 2.3m 
Of course, should there be any sort of swell or wave action, it may be advisable to increase the clearance value to be safer.
