Well, you can always try to turn your boat 180 degrees around. The algorithms used however are based upon a specific type of ship. You cannot used the Delft series, which is based upon sailing yachts, to predict resistance for planing motr boats for example. And of course the methods are also based on ships sailing with the pointy end in front;)

In short, it’s possible to fool the software by rotating your vessel, but the results will be useless.
