Re: Gulf Stream GRIB files??

Just wanted to report that I was able to resolve the issue with the help from this forum Thank you!

Here is what worked:
I was able to get gulf stream grib files through saildoc (command: send rtofs:35N,25N,082W,072W|0.5 0.5|24,48,72,96,120|)
and then overlay these onto the charts in OpenCPN using the GRIB plug-in.

Awesome! Let's you plan and fine-tune your route based on recent gulf stream predictions and take better advantage of the current and avoid counter-current. The RTOFS model through saildocs can also give you currents in other regions of the Atlantic btw
