[R] Polar graph of time and tide

I have been trying to visualize times of lowest tides, month by month.
I have tide predictions with times either in unix time or a text
format, and heights in feet or meters. I had been able to derive the
clock times of each prediction. I would now like to graph this data
with points showing heights as "r" and times as "theta", from 0000 to
2355. There is a seasonal component: I am interested in displaying
times of lowest tides in particular.
I am sure this is so simple as to burden those on the list; I however
have spent two evenings trying to figure out how to use polar.plot,
and I'm not sure that's the best way to do this. May I request some
advice? The docs with polar.plot are not complete, I fear.
Thank you, begging for your indulgence,
