I am running a case of flow around a ships hull.

iterationt per time-step: 12
real time - 5 sec
time step - 0.0001sec.

its been running for a few hours now, but i want to know if its running ok/converging to a solution.

i attach the residuals plot so far, can any one give any opinion about it?

Looks fine, nothing to bother about. I'm just slightly confused why you switched on the energy solver. Do you try to simulate heating of the water around the ship hull? If no, switch it off, it's just useless effort to solve an additional equation.
