I'm from the coast, into surf/sailing.  


- openmoko attached to bouys, phones home with bouy angle, wave forces
- openmoko race application, allow other boats to watch speed, position,
and accel forces on race participants (would be cool to see graphic of
boat hitting waves and the angle while close hauled, other boats could
view visualization when a gust hits a competitor)
- openmoko in moored yacht, alert/webserve info on forces on boat,
similar detect if boat is drifting away from mooring
