    When its -27 degrees with the wind chill, going outside ain't fun for me, so, to satisfy my boat addiction I play around with these kind of things.
    Thought others might find this stuff interesting.

    Just got a Raspberry PI and a SenseHat. Was thinking of trying to use it's features (Temperature, Barameter, Compass, Moisture, etc.) and put it on my NMEA system. (Inland lake, so compass [+/- .2 degrees IIRC] more to keep direction from waving around while at the slip.)

    I had the same issue until I used my inner nerd! I found and purpously placed a hack on the computer that will reveal all passwords ever used. Of course I disconnect the internet first and remove it afterward but hey it works for me.

    As for the raspberry pi and things they are fun and endlessly adaptable. I coach a robotics league at my kids school and many of the 5th graders can already program and or code one. There amazing. Though last night in mentioning this thread I had to explain what ais was.:)

    You guys are way too kind when it comes to my dumb videos. And the usual December cruise video didn't happen this year, I apologize. We spent our Christmas vacation in the Exumas, aboard this old tub:
