Re: Anenometer calibration?
One thing: do NOT do this particular test on a windless or near-calm day. For some reason the wind direction is straight on the bow, no matter what the boat's heading (ask me how I know - one of my better (though mercifully harmless) "duh moments"). ;-)
Speed cal - no wind. Turning in circles - more wind than boatspeed.
Gotcha! I would have figured that out, but only after wasting time going in circles on a calm day. Thanks for saving me the aggravation.
