Thank you for "the coolest thing ever!!!"
 
We're having an open house (Know the Coast Day) at the University of New Hampshire and I'm using OpenCPN in two displays.

One is showing live AIS traffic as well as well as the status of the buoys listening for Right Whales off the New England coast. AIS area notices are used to get the buoy info.

The other is part of a ship simulator I put together to let kids try their hand at the helm of a hydrographic survey vessel. One of the kid's response was "this is the coolest thing ever!!"

So thank you to the whole community for making this great open source tool available. Thank you also for allowing me to contribute some code, especially Pavel for quickly integrating my network code in his development datastream branch. That made it trivial to integrating OpenCPN in my environment. I sure hope I can contribute more code that can make OpenCPN useful both on the bridge and in other settings.
