    Thank you. I am familiar with this excellent excel extension (and actually using it for non-linear interpolations) but it would be nicer and les complicated if excel could do something as simple as smoothen the curve especially considering excel can do the trick for X-Y graphs. Apparently this is not possible for polars.....

    Thanks for the info Fastwave. I was not familiar with this add-in and I will investigate its usability further.

    In my opinion it is a shame that Excel is needs add-in's to make it more usable for technical calculations. It is much more optimised for financial calculations compared to technical calculations....

    KenJ, any chance I could have that polar you did? I've got a 36-2 centerboard. I've looked around for a polar and have been as yet, unsuccessful.

    Best,

    Michael

    Does anyone still have this script? Would it be possible to share it with me?
