There was a laptop rental company that had installed software that allowed them to remotely monitor the laptop, apparently they had also monitored the webcams during shall we say intimate moments.

There exists the ability (through specific software) on windows based computers to remotely turn on the webcam and microphone in "stealth mode", the user would have no indication that either device is in use.If no microphone is fitted some systems can utilise  the speakers or headphones as a microphone.

The information is out there if you search in the right places and have the skill to use it.

Back to the boats, I think this may be my next project over the winter months- something around 50" perhaps ?
