That is correct. 

The serial connection to the VHF is most likely bi-directional, so the next thing would be to assign an Input event (called something like Vhfdsc) into the vhf connection (previously left blank) and then add another nmea0183-to-nmea0183 plugin event (vhfdsc) to insert the DSC and DSE sentences received in event into nmea0183out. This should allow OpenCPN to receive DSC and DSE sentences on the TCP port 10110 and plot them on the chart. That’s how I have mine set up, although I’ve never received any DSC alerts to know if it works. 

The only returning sentence you’d want from OpenCPN back to SK would be route info for autopilot control, and that gets a little more complicated.
Not sure if it'll be of help anymore, but a couple of weeks ago I had a similar issue (me being a noob as well):
Just in case you can get any valid idea from the discussion.
