Converting 2D boat drag to 3D

I have 2D boat CFD analysis results on x-y plane (looking from the top) and on x-z plane (looking from the side). I am trying to convert my 2D analysis results to 3D and I want to compare my data with the experimental results that I already have.

The boats shape is very complex (it is a wigley hull) and I cannot find a correlation between 2D analysis results and 3D real world experimental data. I was wondering if the methods to convert 2D airfoil (infinite wing) results to 3D wing (finite wing) data will work in this case or not.

Can you please help me?
