I tried to edit boat.xml with Polar_pi and weather_routing_pi and I was unable to get either of these to work. I want to tweak my polar file (boat.xml) and Polar_pi crashes when I tried to load it and when I tried to edit it in weather_routing_pi I was unable to display a spreadsheet style format required to alter the values for the polar.
How do other folks edit boat.xml? I also tried to load it into openoffice without success.
I have just installed OpenCPN and plugins on my new Linux Mint 17.1.
Everything works except I can't find any Boat.xml in WeatherRouting plugin.
Where can I download boat.xml ? or a description to create it ?
On the Weather Routing Configuration page in the Boat section click on Edit.
This will open the Boat window.
Here you can enter your boat info and define a Polar file if you have one.
Do a Save and Close and the Boat.xml should be generated.
