So I wonder how you're able to do that.
You aren't directing this at me, but I get your point: How does anyone know what specific instrument a person in the cockpit is staring at?
I have watched people in other boats sitting in their helm seats staring at whatever
electronics are in front of them and not raising their heads for long periods of time to look around them. They do, indeed, look mesmerized.
