yes, I feel your hurt.  I think maybe the payment finally stuck on about the 25th attempt over a month.  Payment staff in Paris - don't ask me - were always going to call me back and never did.  I get the feeling CMAP is a legacy product and not well supported now.
Then there was a major install issue, but that's another story.

That's a quick response.  You are probably right, but start on the dock before the horde arrives.  Eliminate the chances of damping variation and loss of concentration.
Silly question, you have correctly configured B&G Forestay input to the Expedition Forestay variable?  It isn't something else that sending a somewhat similar number?
Don't get me started on COVID.

NJ, the other thing to do is empirical.  At the mooring, no wind, slack the forestay right off.  Sit tight for a few minutes.  Is the H5000 showing the same forestay value as Expedition?  Now wind it right up and do the same?  What's happening now?  If they are different, is it a matter of roundng error?
The other thing I just thought of, what deck display is being used to see Forestay?  I have seen various differences caused by display on a B&G H5000 Graphic Display on NMEA2000 and (say) a GKN display on the mast the other side of a gateway.  Can you see any discrepancies on different displays?

EM ..... get off Win 7 before it leaves you.  Lash out, the risk associated with Win 7 ain't worth it now.
I suppose you have heard about Microsoft's proposed Win 10 replacement incoming?

No.  Only recorded in your instrument system, and the WA numbers that show in the logfile are a consequence of that offset.
I'm still tryng to figure out from the tutorial what is the point of the feature - unlike the sail-varied downwash tables which I get - I assume to correct MHU by chnaging the variable and re-running the WA calcs.  But I'm not sure.

Works fine here.  Smells like an account problem with either PW or your ISP.
But from Nick, is this an Expedition error message, or something from the outer world?  Or a big download on a small connection?  Same problem with the smallest possible GRIB file?

I'd look for differences in PC configuration, basic things like the definition of Windows timestamps, regional settings and the like.  The other possibility is rounding error in the polars driven by different iterations of Windows 10?  I'll be intrigued to see if you can find the difference.
And I don't think 4 minutes is going to corrupt your routing .
