CYC Chart CDs

So, I know enough to think its possible but I don't know nearly enough to get it done. Some help from the wise please!

I got some 08' cyc chartbooks from a friend and I want to use their digital charts (on cd) with opencpn, a vastly better plotter than their POS 'navigation light'. Could anyone help me figure out how to use the charts on Opencpn? Idiots guide version please.

I'm not familiar with cyc digital charts. What is the file extension of the chart files? For more info check Chart Formats | Official OpenCPN Homepage.

Her is an extract from fugawi site looks like they might be bsb chart. CYC means Caribbean Yachting Charts

"...."..."...........

These nautical charts of the the US East Coast and Caribbean are made in the BSB/EAN format from Nautical Publications' (NV.Charts') popular Caribbean Yachting Charts, for use with Fugawi Marine ENC or other compatible software.

US East Coast and Caribbean Yachting Charts are especially produced by Nautical Publications with the requirements of the yachtsman in mind.

If the file extension is .kap they should work ok with OpenCPN
