I agree, its good to get a look at an inlet or harbor. I would not *rely* on it though, Google Earth Images can be out of date by a year or more.
I've used google earth on a laptop to navigate narrow channels at nearby river deltas. While the google earth image could be a year old, the chart soundings could be thirty years or forty years old.
