I have one too! I think I'll use mine for a chart weight.

What's a chart weight? You plan to set the calendar on top of your plotter screen?

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

Actually I have already ordered Mayan Calendar 2.0. It comes with another 7,000 years and is available at West Marine.

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

According to the Guatemalan Mayans the Mexican Mayans made an error and the fin del mundo is not today but the 23rd.

So those holding Mexican Mayan calendars probably have worthless pieces of stone no one would want to buy as they are inaccurate.

Jim - if I find it cheaper someplace else, will WM price match like other things? And will 2.0 work on Windows 8?

Re: Mayan Calender - no longer used

For the sake of propriety, decorum and proper English spelling, it is spelled c-a-l-e-n-d-a-r. But then again, did you mean Mayan collender? If so, it will need a good cleaning by now. Good luck and good sailing!
