How does it work? How do I jump right to Results? (1-2-3)

Despite the hidden complexity of the TBDP©/VBDP© software, it's as easy as 1-2-3 to get the highly accurate performance prediction of your boat...(see video)

     ...Let's skip all the input of your boat's design, power selections and your setup....

     ...Let's also skip the optimization of the many design features that can make your hull run best, most stable....

     ...Let's even skip all the recommendations for performance enhancement that come with every performance analysis that you do with TBDP©/VBDP©...

Let's just jump right to the performance analysis functions that you will do after you've input your hull design just how you'd like to test's how easy it is...

Step 1.
check the "1-2-3 Analysis" checkbox, and get a 'Max Velocity' prediction (step 1) by pressing 'Calc Perform'. (Your hulls limiting velocity is displayed with a unique Report with a results summary and recommendations by the Performance Report Wizard.)

Auto 1-2-3 Performance Analysis
Step 2.
click the "Add VMax" to automatically set the top speed and velocity range that you'll use to complete your full Performance Analysis with variable Trim angle (WAngle) throughout the full operating velocity range of your hull - all by just clicking 'Calc Perform' again. (Your operating Trim range and key limiting Performance factors are automatically adjusted by the 1-2-3 Wizard for each velocity step and shown with your unique Performance Report Summary and Recommendations.)

Calculate Limiting Velocity

Performance Report Summary Wizard
Step 3. click "Details" to see your complete Performance Analysis with trim angle (WAngle), 550+ performance data points and 50+ performance graphic trend charts.

Performance Reports with 550+ data results


50+ Performance Graphic Trend Charts

That's it!  You've just completed a performance analysis of your hull design and setup.

There is LOT's more Reports, and recommendations available with the click of your mouse; and there is a myriad of design modifications that you can make to compare your boats performance 'before and after' each design change or feature adjustment - see what is going to work best for your hull and setup BEFORE you have to make costly, time-consuming, permanent changes to your actual boat.

And there is still the 'Power' Analysis feature that gives all the performance data points PLUS Acceleration curves and Elapsed Time maps.

And see it all in Comparative Graphic Trend Charts, or detailed data Reports, or Printed Performance Reports.
