    It's a man-made body of water linking the Red Sea with the Mediterranean, Sean.

    A quick try of the Ship Simulator demo version. Not impressed. Seems impossible to operate the port and starboard thrusters at the same setting so the boat goes off half cocked. Pushing up arrow makes the thrusters run at full RPM then letting go it goes to zero, nothing in between. Doesn't seem to be any documentation. Glad I didn't spend any actual money on this. I guess it's time to lower the lifeboat and abandon ship.
