    Ratios,wind + current

    On the subject of the ratio idea, it isn't feasable.I tried last night and
    one really needs 2 knowns to find an unknown.I was thinking we use ratios
    everyday to measure all sorts of things and maybe this would work.For this
    application it won't as pointed out by the posts on the subject and by my
    trying to do it on paper last night.Oh well,something to do.
    This subject of harbor or slip manouvering is a good subject for further
    discussion both in theory and practical applications.What about discussions
    on propeller charactoristics,hull shapes, fluid dynamics or just boat
    handling in tight spots or in adverse conditions?Do you guys consider the
    above as on subject or off?Maybe someone out there never operated a single
    wheel vessel and might wonder about it or gain some insight from someone on
    list that has the experiance etc.
