However, particularly in the context of a ship at sea, having all the 
systems run as near to GPS time as you can may be important when trying to 
correlate results across the different systems, or with GPS position 
(which will be GPS time).  Perhaps even to the extent of having GPS time 
on the cameras as well.

Other than that, agree with your comments.
