Either use Google Earth's API, or find a library that uses the NOAA vector-based charts and allows you to interact with them. Unlike the BSB charts, which are raster, and essentially a "scan" of the paper charts, the vector-based ENC charts are database driven, with vector shape data defining the different items in a chart.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
