Chetco SeaSmart

Panbo has an item on the new Chetco SeaSmart Serial, Wifi and Ethernet devices.

These seem to be nicely wrapped-up versions of the N2K to Ethernet bridge that has been talked about and that I've been writing myself for my own use.

At the moment the specifications on the protocol are still quite vague, and contain strange terminology (as Jeff Siegel pointed out on Panbo) where they talk about "HTTP Header" that looks like a reference to a NMEA 0183 style message ($Pxxxxx).

Whatever their protocol is going to be, it looks interesting enough to add such a protocol to my NMEA0183 forwarder and integrate it with my NMEA2000 packetlogger application.
