I had an utterly BRILLIANT idea! (Surely someone else has beaten me to it!)

We need a qualified and skilled computer nerd who is also a boat nut. This person should be tapped to wire up a pair of shifter-throttles with a pair of engine panels, a computer with a four huge screen display arranged around a 'cockpit', video of several docking and mooring opportunities. Soundtrack and panels could be appropriately programmed with idiot lights, tach, screeches and curses (of the other half and docklizards), crunching noises etc.

The finished product would be a simulator similar, but obviously simpler, to those readily available for amateur (and professional) airplane pilots.
