I suggest you ...

Modify the vessel icon with line-segment extension to hint speed/direction

It would be useful to add a line segment radiating from the current location in the direction of travel. The length of the line segment would represent the distance that would be covered in X minutes at the current speed (programmable). This way one could easily judge the time before reaching a mark or hazard, independent of chart zoom. The line segment would also serve as a better indicator of heading than the current arrow head.

The speed and heading could be filtered to avoid erratic line segment.
