    I know that the equations that govern marina navigation are very
    complex with currents and winds added, and that there may be no current
    good real-time calculation mechanism to make use of them.
    But I am looking for us to develop a more rigorous theory of what is
    happening so that we can learn from it and make some progress on
    understanding the physics of winds and currents so we can have some
    first principles to work from while at the helm.  I am therefore
    looking for the theory that will help practice.
