How to alter the predicted speed of your boat

How to align predicted and actual speeds of your boat.

If savvy navvy is constantly showing speeds that your boat can’t match, try:

(A) reducing the length of your boat as adding this dictates the hull speed we calculate within our algorithm

If you are a catamaran you could also try:

(B) Adjusting your settings to monohull (which we treat as going slightly slower) but the tracking angles might change too much, so it’s advisable to try option A first.

To go into these settings please click the 3 grey dashes on the top left of your screen, select Boat Setting, then adjust the waterline length using the toggle.

If any of this is unclear please get in touch for some assistance from the team.
