sQuiddio plugin v0.4 gets thumbs up by OpenCPN lead developer

Here's what s/v Dyad skipper Dave (@Bigdumboat)  has to say after taking the latest version of the plugin for a spin:

"I want to thank you for creating your sQuidd.io plugin for OpenCPN. sQuidd.io is absolutely fantastic. All your features are excellent. 

Your check-in/out, is unique. As far as I know it's a one-of-a-kind and should prove to be popular. Cruisers will love the ability to share their location too. The sQuidd-Master is a brilliant mix of fun and responsibility. Well done." 

"We're thrilled with sQuiddio's plugin. OpenCPN users have been requesting this feature. sQuiddio answered the call. We think you're going to love it."

Needless to say, as members of the huge and fast-growing community of OpenCPN lovers, we are the ones who feel like thanking Dave for giving the plugin a try and sharing his feedback with us!
