Re: whats missing?

What is missing is the boat getting sailed once.

Gadgets are just that. Are you about to keep it in dry storage or something?

BTW You can add ENDLESSLY to the inventory. Just let me know why.

Re: whats missing?

Do I have it right about that helm position ?

It looks to me like the helmsman can only see where he is going by looking THROUGH the salon.

Re: whats missing?

Yes, I think so.
After more consideration, I think I will pass on this boat, the afore mentioned items plus the exchange rate between the US and Canadian currency is killing me.
Thanks !

Re: whats missing?

I doubt that someone standing with their head through the hatch could reach the wheel. I understand that skilled operators such as yerself steer with their toes but what about the mere mortals ?
