There is a neat bit of software you can get for a symbian phone witha GPS fitted. that will time your 0 - 60 without having to manually start and stop a timer , it's all done automatically. and this bit will please Jon, it won't come ready to go until it detects you are static. Don't know how difficult it is to be static in the sea though.

Cant remember what its called i'll hunt for it
