Let us know what features we're missing for marine nav and we'll see
if we can add them in the coming years.  Or anyone with a bit of
C-knowledge could do it and send us patches.

We can use a large variety of map formats, so if you have free
marine map data it's likely that we can either use it directly or
convert it to one of our supported formats.

You can do a search on SourceForge for other mapping/nav programs,
plus Google might yield some useful results as well.
