In Topic: Wind against current

 The wind is of little significance in the equation, and is somewhat confusing the answer.


 the same phenomenon would happen with no wind at all, if you already had a developed wave train on the move.


 upthread, Tane gave a good description of whats going on.




  Imagine in this image that below the circles of the water mol moving, the water was moving R to L.

 That would kick the mol's to the left at the bottom of their orbit and stack them into the wave behind.


  eventually shortening the period and heightening the face of each progressive wave as it meets the counter current.

Having personally done one and paid for it, the re-core job is $20k on the cheap side.


  Still have the boat and think its still a great value, particularly if your on the GL's.


  As mentioned, there are some nice turnkey boats on the class site that would be better buys...
