Re: Hot Water Pressure - Change since last season

sounds like an airpocket in the waterheater. Open the over-pressure relieve valve while the pressure pump is on and let the air out.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.1.511 Beta Test

Thanks! This works ok for me on a Dell i5 laptop and on Asus ARM Tinkerboard (both Linux). Hopefully it works for Baikal too.

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.1.428 Beta Test

Yes, that would get me and hopefully others back to what worked before. I am guilty in having made other cruisers addicted to mbtiles... And an adjustable size-limit is helpful for the PI3/4 folks...

Re: OpenCPN Version 5.1.428 Beta Test

No apparent problem here with WP layers containing many thousands of points, or with layers that have tracks and waypoints (economic exclusion zones).
