Polar diagrams in MaxSea TZ

Following the post called “Boat characteristics and learning to wally!” I had a number of mails about polar diagrams see also the comments to that post from Peter Gustafsson.

Polar1I can confirm that MaxSea TZ does have a comprehensive polar diagram creation option. It does not assume that the port and starboard speeds are symetrical (like some software). And you can create the diagram automatically

Polar2You can then edit the results to take into account special considerations on the day that you made your recording – such as sea state.

You can also store diagrams according to differing sail sets that you are likely to use.
