While most learned folks politely answer a dumb question by insisting that there is no such thing, here's one to prove 'em wrong.
I live on the NH seacoast and know of only one spot available to the public with a clear view of the southern horizon...to about 190 degrees or so. The tides here are about 9 feet. Eye is about 5' above the ground, and the ground is.... depends... above sea level. I've estimated that the ground is between 15 and 20 feet above the high tide line. Do I have to make allowances for tides less than high?
Just finished making the wings for today's festivities. I hope to hear from someone who might have some thoughts on this thorny issue!
