    After having been introduced to the skill of fishing lately in fact I gmed it. I got to thinking about how you really pilot a vessel. You steer it by maintaining a compass direction, I would like to see better maps. a compass rose on the map by which you could choose the course to sail. I know you can set you course on a map and hand it to the tiler man to steer automatically, due to the size of the maps it is inaccurate at best. I would like to have as a new device a navigation compass to steer my boat. uorudder works to a point but, in my opinion needs work to really be good.

    I think it is time for boats to get some love. Some new types of boats maybe a sailing sloop. or a clockwork assembly/power crystal driven boat.
