Do you just need a display or do you need it to be interactive. If all you need is a display, you might try getting a small LCD monitor and mirroring the display off the laptop on it. If it can be powered off of 12 VDC, then the wiring of it would be relatively simple...

You could enclose it or put it behind a window in the bulkhead and that would protect it from spray, rain, etc.

If you need interactive capability, then it gets a lot more expensive.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
