    So always wondered about this and it makes no sense to me. For example high tide in Rhode island is about 8 am today being 6/13/18. Why is the high tide in cape cod at noon four hours later? Tides are all about the moon and the gravitational pull on the ocean so why cape cod only being not that far away is the high tide 4 hours later? There must be a scientific reason for this?

    The moon is beyond bizarre. It is unable to rotate but yet strong enough to cause our entire ocean to rise and fall everyday. The excepted theory for its origin is even more bizarre. A giant asteroid hit Earth so hard that it caused enough of its mantel to be swept up into a massive wave so high that it left the planet's atmosphere and over time all of the boulders of mantel smashed into each other and formed our Moon at the perfect distance to not rotate so it could better redistribute the Oceans bounty to all shores. Once that theory was debunked (due to not enough material) it was later changed that another asteroid or the same one, came back around and hit the Earth once again to do the same so enough material could made to create such a giant object we see in the sky. Sounds legit.

    The "excepted theory"?? So it is way different than other theories?? So everything you wrote is an exception??
    Oh, IIIIII seeeee, now....you mean "accepted'!!
    Well, why didn't you say so in the first place?

    that has nothing to do with my tidal question. I still don't see a Lehman answer to my simple question. Only answer I am trusting as of now is barry's explanation that massholes are fucked up. thats all I have to go on. Thank you swellinfo for providing me with no accurate info at all! the cutting and pasting of wikipedia links is saying basically I dont understand it either but I will send you this link that doesnt explain it but makes me look like I understand it.

    Maybe due to bathemitry the tide or water takes longer to wrap around into Rhode island then it does to more exposed or more easterly facing cape cod or NH waters for example. The tide may flow North to south?

    You requested a "scientific explanation". Now you request a Lehman. The link I tossed you is an introductory scientific explanation in Lehman terms. All you had to do was dive into the site a bit more, for explanations relevant to your question:

    https://www.co-ops.nos.noaa.gov/restles5.html

    You can't expect most who don't know your homebreak well, and those relatively close, to answer your question. That is up to you, as a regular, avid observer.

    SO YOU CAN EXPLAIN IT IN LEHMAN TERMS THE ANSWER TO MY QUESTION? THANK YOU. I THINK I FIGURED IT OUT. BUT WAS OBVIOUS TO ME NO ONE KNOWS ON THIS WEBSITE. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAN TO GO TO A SWELLINFO FOR AN INTELLIGENT ANSWER

    I did not take you to raise. I also do not give a damn about your cold water break.

    In laymans terms the water sloshes from point A to point B as the tide rises and falls. The water has to navigate the geographic features of the coastline. The delay is due to the the time it takes the water getting from point A to point B. That is why Cape Cod and the Cape Cod Canal have some absolutely crazy currents as the tide goes in and out.
