MI Simulators Radar Simulator

Short Story:

Anyone know what happened to MI Simulators in England?


Long Story:

A couple of years ago, I stumbled across a company that produced software to simulate marine electronics. The name of the company is (was?) MI Simulators.

You "equipped" a boat, power or sail, with a number of different pieces of marine electronics. You then "went boating", playing with/learning about the operation of the electronics while trying not to hit rocks, other boats and so forth, as you navigated to and fro.

Among the various pieces of gear I was particularly interested in was the radar simulator, as know little about the use of radar on small boats. What really attracted me was the fact that one of simulation options was the Furuno 1623, which I just happen to have on my boat!

I downloaded the 30 day trial and set to learning. It was, quite frankly, amazing to be able to use my radar in the comfort of my den. (I've never been a fan of learning about safety items WHEN YOU NEED THEM.)

The demo expired right about the time my health took a turn for the worse and so I put it aside.

I'm now back and preparing to go sailing again and would like to actually purchase this software; it was certainly cheap enough.

Only I can't; they seem to have disappeared.

Any help tracking them down would be appreciated.
