My THANKS to OpenCPN

Once again, I just want to express my gratitude for this software, and for the obvious work and dedication to those who keep making it better.

I have a 35 year old boat, and sail on a rediculously tight budget, so OpenCPN is the ONLY way I could afford to have elecronic navigation on anything but a tiny screen. I run it on an old 10" Dell 410, under Linux Mint, and LOVE IT!!!

You guys seriously rock!

THANK YOU!!!!

Dougal,

What a nice note! I hope the guys for whom it is intended get to read it. Good of you to say thank you.

Ann

Re: My THANKS to OpenCPN

It really is such a GREAT piece of kit. Used it from open water sailing, to where I am now, being the END of navigation in the city centre of Vannes in France. With good charts and a decent GPS receiver, it just can't be beat. Ok, so maybe a 10inch plotter world work too, but i'm happy
