I also highly recommend making use of Active Captain and the information stored there. NOAA Coast Survey has added ActiveCaptain to their "cartographic toolkit in the chart evaluation system. Last year NOAA licensed the ActiveCaptain data for internal use.
Always good to have current, multiple reports that are up-to-date.
