  Description     : NMEA 2000 (and 0183) toolkit for marine data networks

CANboat provides NMEA 2000 (n2k) and NMEA 0183 utilities for interfacing with
marine onboard data networks. An NMEA 2000 PGN decoder can read and decode N2K
messages. You can also generate and publish n2k messages and send them to the
network. USB devices, like the Actisense NGT-1 NMEA2000 PC Interface, or CAN
devices can be used to interface withthe network.
Another utility can read NMEA 0183 data and send it to stdout. You can tee data
to TCP sockets to send data to 3rd party data brokers.

I use this sotware on my boat on an ongoing basis and would like to package it
for my distro. I'm working on some other Sailing/boating related debian
packages as well.

I am not a DD, so I will need a sponsor.
