Chart-plotting Heaven

Yep...that is where we are. In chart plotting heaven. Before leaving home, I downloaded a new open-source charting program (OpenCPN), and I was able to install it today on our navigation computer. The fabulous part is it is compatible with a variety of electronic chart file types, so we have chart coverage for most of the world. I've managed to get it up and running, link it to our GPS receiver, and we're happily playing with a variety of different route options. Very cool.
