User Manual | Vessels | Introduction

The vessel is an important concept in LuckGrib weather routing. Each vessel created has its own, independent set of:

  • weather routing settings.
  • weather routing solutions.
  • position reports (or track.)
  • route that it is following.

By creating more than one vessel, you can:

  • generate weather routes for companion boats, to track their progress forward.
  • experiment with alternate scenarios using the weather router solver.
  • simultaneously display weather routes comparing different scenarios.

You need at least one vessel in order to use weather routing.
