I wear a digital smart watch and I’ve selected a screen with analog hands to show time.

Which is the type of digital gauge readout I prefer in both airplanes and boats

No interpretation needed. No brainpower needed. Just a quick glance would tell you if everything was all right.
Just like the road racer crowd that rotates their tachometers so you can quickly tell (peripheral vision) when you are at redline:

That's what a autopilot is for...

Mako,
Get a good wireless controller, a deck chair and go sit on the upper deck. LOL

A classic steel hull Dutch motor yacht.


Some interesting little features...like the bridge control pedestal.

Don’t think I could handle the engine access though.

That thing is gorgeous. Anyone got suggestions on where I can read up on similar boats? I'm completely unfamiliar with Dutch motor yachts, much less 80 year old ones.

No, but............................................... ............."yacht" is derived from a Dutch word from the Middle Ages, "jagcht" , roughly translated as small and fast boat

I think it's Jacht. g and ch are both the dreaded soft g sounds in Dutch. Using both is redundant. Also means "hunt" as in hunting. (Jagen)

Yes, I know it as jacht and the place where it is built, a jachtwerf.

And if you want to see the true definition of jacht, you can see it here.

Was next in line beside us a few days ago waiting for fuel

Of interest is that she's plastic
And
Single stabiliser wing.

I'd think s/s protection for pulling pots, not that I think she's ever pulled pots.

Ditto. I told her it’s still better than people porn and she had to agree.

That widow maker on the sole between the pilothouse and the galley. I'd end myself twice a day on that thing. There's just no way I'd survive it. Within a week, every surface of the inside of that pilothouse would be evenly covered with a thick spray of coffee and blood and eggs.
