@mxtommy KIP instrument display webapp for Signalk
Not sure about attaching here, but it seams the best place to ask.

I am tiring to make a setup, where the pi4 and a round screen display (secondary) are the "Captain's computer clock"  =  the watch clock with ships log info all at one quick read.
the primary but dummied 1080i HTML monitor is used with a second menu dock, and would be used with VNC (99% of the open plotter interactions)
What I have so far is that on a multi display the 800x800 round touch display works (but what I would ask for help on is, is setting up a multi instrument display or new KIP?)
I have thought about a conky for the clock but?
see attached rough Idea for a multi instrument display (noting the KIP template/interface does not seam to allow stacking) 
The intent is, a simple ( I know it is not simple to code) multi instrument/computer that when touched wakes the screen for instant information, "before watch or ? ( noting this would be helpful for a quick below deck anchor watch = distance to way point.  and also for those who still have a paper log that is recorded every XX min.  In my case the " open plotter part  would be through the VNC interface", and would be an ipad imbeded in the top washboard, but could include other screens via VNC.  

I missed the title for red gauge is for speed, and the outside rings could be for wind, pressure, RPM or ? = 2 sections that are outside the gps and openCPN data set which is the min for open plotter.

For a rough idea of the hardware see under " How do I...? "   Three blind mice (maybe solved)
