My other blog is not the place to make fun of my crewmates. This one is. So I present to you the nav panel.
These are five intelligent, seasoned sailors all staring at a single instrument, presumably trying to figure out what button to hit to do something or another. This nav panel is infuriating. It just has too much on it. Apparent wind angle? Sure but why not look up at the top of the mast? Rudder angle? Of course, but isn't there a kingspoke on the wheel? One of the panels rotates between SOG and COG so you have to wait a while to figure out what you're looking for.
So that's their excuse for looking confused. Except if I remember right, the exhilirating nav panel lesson that was being administered was how to turn off the autopilot.
