Gulf of Maine

During the Great Depression President FDR authorized a tidal power project in Maine at or near the Passamaquoddy reservation, that was only partially built. The “Half Moon” tidal project was a feasibility study done in the 1970s and I think they have it in place. One of the meeting places I read in the “Quoddy Tides” (some of if not the highest tides in the world) out of Eastport, Maine is at the end of the dock where there is a solar powered lodge. A huge one was once proposed for Nova Scotia but as I recall in “Scientific American” it would have changed the depth of tide in Boston, Massachusetts harbor by 6 inches and from there up the coast a greater change. Some submerged designs in Scotland to me seem the best, the current holds them down to the bottom without superstructure involved. 11/6/06
