MacENC or its sister product GPSNavX will both take AIS input. MacENC can use both ENC and BSB format charts. GPSNavX can only use the BSB raster format charts.

That assumes that they're on an Intel based Mac, which may or may not be the case. Also, why would you want to inflict Windows on yourself if you can avoid it. Finally, the cost of doing so is far greater, since you would need to own licenses for the Windows operating system as well as the virtual machine software and any software you were using in Windows.
A bit old thread, but couldn't resist. If anything else fails, you can install a virtual machine on your Mac, then open another Os in a separated window.
I have WindowsXP runing on my Mac so I can run some old OceanNavigator planning and old raster charts. You can download it free from Sun at Sun VirtualBox - Downloads

Still assumes they're on an Intel-based mac... lots of G4 based ones still out there...
SD, Virtualbox is free, and I use it as a final resource if everything else fails. Although I don't tolerate Windows (I'm an Open Source fan), there are cases where you have no other alternative. I had already purchased a license (in my previous life dependent of uSoft drugs) and charts for OceanNavigator, PassagePlaning, etc .. wich runs Windows only. You should try, easy to use, configure and really fun. Another point, it runs better than native Intel !!!!!
