            I wrote a program which I thought was a help in planning cruises.
    You enter a set of waypoints and it would prepare a report of distances
    between waypoints, bearing to each waypoint and sailing time at the average
    speed you select.  A really boring program!  But it helps me dream of all
    the places I want to see before hanging up the oilies for good.
            In searching the web I found a site that has a million times better
    program.  It is the program I wanted to write but decided it would take me
    too long to prepare.  It displays a chart of the area you want to cruise
    (charts come with the program!) and you just place a cursor on a waypoint
    and 2 click.  Voila!  You have captured the waypoint Lat/Lon.  It also
    interfaces with a GPS to indicate the position of your boat on the chart!
    Also you can interface it to your autopilot!  The only drawback I can detect
    is that it does not make the morning coffee.  I am sure the author, Olle
    Soderholm, is working on that, too.
            I have no connection with Olle....  I just found it on the web,
    installed it and took it for a test spin and have to give Olle Soderholm,
    the author, a hats off.
            The site for downloading it is:
            Sorry but you'll have to copy the URL to your browser.  I can't make
    it a link with MS Exchange (bad software!).
