Hi Mike,

I reread the manual this past weekend and picked up on those items. I fiddled with the “Waves” properties sheet and entered some 9 meters high waves with 500 foot lengths (to be shorter than my model’s LPP. The resistance calcs didn’t seem to change. I wonder whether the waves functionality will visualize quartering and beam wave action. It would be FUN to set up some high sea states to check for wetness over the bow to determine whether i need a bullwark or a higher one, and whether green water will enter the hawsers, or how much my transom will see water shipping onto the flight deck.

But, I MUST say i had FUN FUN FUN playing around.
