This is really putting a damper in my analysis of large swells at that time.
I found grb2 files for these days but cannot view them in OpenCPN
Thank you for a great group. I want to be as helpful as the group.
What OS are you using?
If it's Linux
or OS-X there's command line tools for converting grib2 to grib1 and they should work for wave data. eg:
grib_set -s editionNumber=1 wave.grb2 wave.grb
On Window, I'm not sure, they should exist but may be harder to find.
Otherwise if it's a one off, put a link with your data and I will convert them.
I'm modifying OpenCPN for reading grib2, it's working but it's not yet 'out of the box'.
