Pypilot with existing N2K network & PI3B
Newbie PI user jumping in to the mix.
I have a working electric motor from '90 era autopilot. I also have a PI 3b and a B&G chartplotter and N2K network with wind, depth etc.
How would I get "pypilot hat" to use network data?

There is this hat and if workable, would the pypilot hat sit on top?

I am assuming pypilot could pull data from PI inputs via openplotter or opencpn.

Pushing my luck:
I would also like to have weather injected into the network; baro, temp, humidity. 
I am assuming I could add a weather hat or card. 

Thoughts,  advice or any input appreciated.
The pypilot hat uses the i2c, spi, and uart pins. The others are optional but serve other functions. Check the schematic

It is not usually possible to stack arbitrary hats on a raspberry pi. Another option would be to use a separate pi zero w for pypilot and have it networked to another raspberry pi with your other hat.
