canadianseamonkey It should only be a matter of time before it's all packaged into one simple application. Man...what would Columbus think of all this????

xort activecaptain.com is trying to overlay charts. should be pretty interesting when it gets set up

Digiital You can already. Get the files (overlay) for GE(Google Earth) from earthnc.com They have Noaa and other overlays.

You can set this all up from home witht he internet connection, in GE, increase the cache to something like 3 gigs and then while at home, zoom in and around the area you plan on sailing and it will store those images on the harddrive and access them when your out on the water without internet access.

Good instructions can be found here.

This wouldn't be that difficult to do and it would be something else to take our mind of work.

Not sure if you would ever be able to use it to navigate, maybe in time, but for now it would just be a great way to incorporate both systems.

She's probably not hurting... I hope she was smart enough to hang on to the stock, at least until they went public.

TrueBlue Google sold for $85 in 2004, and now sells for $600 . . . always a dollar short and a day late.

TrueBlue SD,
Perhaps we can barter . . . I'll contribute some of my old Polaroid shares - you pitch in some cash to go halves on Google . . . deal?
