The Ship's Computer is the general computer for the boat. We will use it for some monitoring duties but most of its time will be dedicated to storing scans of manuals for equipment, keeping maintenance records, keeping budgets, writing letters, and accessing the internet.
We intend to purchase a chartplotter that accepts a computer video signal. So, we will not have to have a separate display. And, we can use a wireless keyboard to access the computer from the captain's chair.
