You can already. Get the files (overlay) for GE(Google Earth) from They have Noaa and other overlays.

You can set this all up from home witht he internet connection, in GE, increase the cache to something like 3 gigs and then while at home, zoom in and around the area you plan on sailing and it will store those images on the harddrive and access them when your out on the water without internet access.

Good instructions can be found here.

This wouldn't be that difficult to do and it would be something else to take our mind of work.

Not sure if you would ever be able to use it to navigate, maybe in time, but for now it would just be a great way to incorporate both systems.
