Powerboat Polars

Interesting point that Power Boats also can also use polars! Yes, they do have different characteristics based on the speed and angle of the wind and that can be mapped! This all adds up to fuel savings or not, and the polars can help make predictions for speed at certain RPM etc.

Conachair pointed me at this source for recording polars which mentions recording a power boat's polars.
