The NOAA Coastal Service Center has a free program called chart projector
that will convert the format from BSB to Geotiff and you can set the
projection output as well.

Subject: [UMN_MAPSERVER-USERS] NOAA Digital Raster Charts in BSB, any
guidance on use with mapserver?
For 'free', both NOAA and Maptech have released the BSB versions of the
NOAA raster charts - on NOAA's site, looks like around 1012 files. I've
downloaded a couple of hundred and I'm wondering how best to manage this
as there are maps with differing resolutions covering the same areas.
I'm sure this is a solved problem so I'm hoping some kind soul out there
might provide me with some guidance on how best to configure a map file
to display these images in mapserver taking into account varying scales
of these images - and here I'm aware of min/maxscale - like I need to
sort the files according to map scale and generate indexes for each
group. Has someone already made a bundle of these guys? Bittorrent? Is
there a WMS server (my preference)?
In case this is news, here are the links:
Lots of clicking, fast server
Slow server, signup required
