Kevin,

This is the pqact.conf entry for decoding into Gempak format:

#
# ship, buoy and CMAN
WMO     (^S[IMN]V[^GINS])|(^S[IMN]W[^KZ])|(^S(HV|HXX|S[^X]))|
        (^SX(VD|V.50|US2[0-3]))|(^Y[HO]XX84)
        PIPE    decoders/dcmsfc -b 9 -a 10000
        -d data/gempak/logs/dcmsfc.log
        -e GEMTBL=/home/gempak/NAWIPS/gempak/tables
        data/gempak/ship/YYYYMMDDHH_sb.gem
#

If you wanted to save the data in raw format you could use something like
this:


WMO     (^S[IMN]V[^GINS])|(^S[IMN]W[^KZ])|(^S(HV|HXX|S[^X]))|
        (^SX(VD|V.50|US2[0-3]))|(^Y[HO]XX84) .... ([0-3][0-9])([0-2][0-9])
        FILE       data/surface/buoy/(\1:yyyy)(\1:mm)\1\2_buoy.wmo

But you might want to separate the ship, buoy, etc data into separate
files, and I'm not sure which pattern is for ship, which for buoy or CMAN.
