    Personally if I need to know where we are I nip along to the bridge and ask one of the bus drivers to point it out to me on the map.
    It's because you glorified bus drivers have a habit of running ships aground and we don't want to be dragged through the courts with you because some moron as hit an island...
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

          In terms of educational (not practical) apps, there are three ones I own for helping you learn buoyage, Rules of the Road and Nav lights by a dev called iGlimpse. You learn it all in class obviously but I've had a play on a train or two before.

                    And at what point did you get bored and wander off?

                            Remembers last sea phase , playing Plants vs zombies in the crew mess computer , having wagers of soft drinks on who could complete a level that had been on there for a few days. True to say i never won any soft drinks . Put a fillipino in front of a computer for a few hours and he will succeed , darn cook and steward winning all the time they must of had nothing else to do whilst the rest of us grafted
                            Maybe I will never be
                            All the things that I want to be
                            But now is not the time to cry
                            Now's the time to find out why

                              The game helped them arrange their thoughts?
