I confess to using the wind instrument behind the helm wheel more often than looking up the mast. However, most times, I sit off to the windward side and can see around the bimini anyway, so I rarely look through the glass panel. The wind instrument has also been known to stick occasionally, which can be problematic.
T-easy is right on with the tape. Yarn can be used as well. Unfortunately, there is way to much artificially induced seamanship pride that would suggest they are like training wheels. I say to all of them.... relax. This is supposed to be for fun. Bowthrusters are fine too!! That ought to get them going.
