DNC Revisited - Hopefully

I have read the DNC threads I could find here.

For planning purposes I would like to just view DNC charts on my LINUX PC at home.

Am I crazy?

I am an experienced computer user, but it is best to asume I need answers a NOOB would be able to follow.

I am going to deliver a trawler from Louisiana to Oregon in August, and it is sad to have to go back to using Windows. The last two years I used OpenCPN on Mint Linux to run a troller during the Oregon Salmon Seasons. I would rather row with Linux than have diesel and Windows.

Thank you all for any information you provide.

Re: DNC Revisited - Hopefully

The DNC and ENC charts of US waters are the same data just different formats. Outside the US waters DNC charts are not made available to the general public any longer.

OpenCPN supports ENC charts of US waters on Linux.
