I have just published a beta version of the new renderer in its JOSM Imagery Layer plugin form. Please try it out and report any problems, either by opening a ticket here: https://github.com/OpenNauticalChart/S- … ite/issues or a post to this thread. Please provide an OSM file that will cause the problem. If JOSM reports an unexpected exception, please also provide the console output.
To install the plugin, refresh your plugin list and look for "SeaChart" and install it. It is invoked by selecting "SeaChart" in the imagery menu.
The renderer is about 90% complete. Yet to be added are the Brazilian notice marks. You may see some erroneous artefacts in the land area rendering - this is a known problem that I will defer until all the seamark layer rendering is complete.
The "SeaChart" plugin is not found by JOSM. I tried with 9900 (stable) and 9908 (latest).
My JOSM Plugin description URL is https://josm.openstreetmap.de/pluginicons%<?plugins=>

I expect to launch my new seamark layer tile renderer very soon. Until then, please nominate test areas that I can do preliminary tests upon. These should contain seamarks of many different types, so that as many of renderer's features are tested as possible.
finally some time to do first testing:
+ it works!
- multi polygons need to be downloaded fully (land/ water areas) to render a meaningful map
- need to delete layer / select imagery > SeaChart again after downloading area outside previous bounds
- slider layer opacity changes just brightness, not opacity
