But how useful is a screen that big when you get all those little spots of salt spray cluttering up your vision? I only have a small screen, the moments I want to sit down for a while to rest my legs I find it difficuly seeing small details in sea conditions etc.
I know what you meen I hate those sea salt spots as well. Customer must be used to it as he had a big screen on the old rib.. apparently he needs the big screen as crosses the channel often!!

Probably not, it's a bit obscure, even for me

Your original post only mentions "cross channel", Tony (probably correctly) took this to mean the Channel Islands, overlooking the (unlikely) possibility of a delivery to say, Continental Europe...

... reminding me of the old headline.
