I have tried to explain to a gamer how my nav program is sort of like a video game. You have the charts, tides, currents, can also get NOAA input that gives wind and wave hieght add to that speed, depth, GPS, AIS and radar input.....then trying to sail all at the same time you have a pretty complex video game. Thing is if you screw up...you don't just reset the game, it's real.
