I've been playing one of the NY ferry missions this evening and noticed a nameplate WILHELM BRUHEN underneath the wheelhouse of the NY Big Apple ferry.

What is the significance of this name?

(According to Google, Wilhelm Bruhen was a German inventor who came up with the taximeter, which automatically recorded the distance traveled and/or the time consumed, thus enabling the fare to be accurately measured).

Might be an easteregg of the dev's. If you look closely you can spot the names of a few dev's on a few vessels  :)

The Vermaas is a very nice example  ;D

What,  "No Smoking"  underneath the bridge?   ;) :P

Is it "De LEEUW GPS" on the domed radar? (at both ends on the top of wheelhouse)

Yep the GPS is one, but Vermaas is the last name of one of the dev's  :) Sigita works at VSTEP HQ and the name of the virtual owner of the jack-up rig is also one of the dev's  :)
