Holy crap you steer with a tennis racket LOL. I know I had one of them things that floats but gots no sails that had bowthrusters with a joystick, my stepson once asked if the chartplotter could be used with it to play video games...on a boat, in the ocean, porpoises swimming along beside us, the ships and yachts and all the rest to see and he wanted to play Halo on my chartplotter...
