Re: Gulf Stream GRIB files??

you can download GRIB files in GRIB.US for viewing in OpenCPN. just download the file as normal, close GRIB.US window and then open the file (from wherever you saved it) in OpenCPN. you must activate the GRIB addon in Open CPN first.

it works, however, the GRIB viewer in Open CPN is frustrating as it will only show one frame at a time, giving you a snapshot and not a progression.
