1.As per the Wave component best practice article, remember direction is global entity and not specific to the vessel.

2.Use the provided UI plots/graphs to verify the input current directions and magnitudes are correct.

3.As per the Seabed component best practice, if you want seabed friction to counteract current loading then apply the current through a restart analysis. During a standard static analysis the friction coefficients are not introduced until the end of the analysis sequence after the current loading has been applied and hence there is no counteraction.
