An indicator for a tide station appears on the chart as a vertical bar graph with an arrow. A red

arrow pointing downward indicates a falling tide, and a blue arrow pointing upward indicates a

rising tide. When you move the cursor over the tide station indicator, the height of the tide at the

station appears above the station indicator.
Current direction indicators appear as arrows on the chart. The direction of each arrow indicates

the direction of the current at a specific location on the chart. The color of the current arrow

indicates the range of speed for the current at that location. When you move the cursor over the
