    Possibly because it's not the same video. Anyway, this steering lark is too complicated for me; I'll stick to my autopilot.

    He's missing some capitals. Obviously missed out on his anti-viago vaccinations. I know some quite respectable people with plotters.

    Yes, as usual, using my iPad.✔️

    Just a straight statement about the UK boat no implications about the boat in Portugal.

    Two important responses:

    No vaccinations missed. It's just the cause of all the daily pills. With the diuretic I don't have the time for a plotter.

    The reference to plotters was a test. I just wondered if I provoked chart plotter owners they would all open the thread.

    On a serious, very important question: isn't the wheel rather small. Given that there was a warning not to jerk the wheel - that was 'jerk the wheel' not about the 'jerk with the wheel' - was the wheel deliberately small so it wouldn't be damaged giving a big jerk. At the end of the film where the craft (destroyer?) zooms past close, given the helmsman can't see nuffin I would like to be sure the officer in command was under control!

    This is the man on whose "new" vessel has so many devices (two plotters and one fish finder) that you can barely see ahead...
