Many thanks for your help.
Bill,have a look at this:
The Route Manager and Data Import/Export | Official OpenCPN Homepage
Of course you'll have to name em and organize em ,export em-they'll be exported as ".gpx" files)and then "import" them with the new install.I save(export) anyything deemed a keeper to a dedicated folder that's independent of OpenCPN's folders.Likewise,saved GPX from other navigation
apps can go in here.Open cpn can import
them too,if you like.
OpenCPN really has two homes-two folders.One has opencpn.exe and the machinery she needs and the other has the data files that YOU have accumulated as you use it.This is great for a reinstall-your data isn't lost
another way for you is to copy over the entire config folder or at least the files in it,to the same "location"your new laptop,....given the OS is the same,but I'd advise anone to backup their marks,routes and tracks as exported gpx anyways....
