We have tried to make it a habit whenever we are away for a week or so. I would suggest that it is a good idea to get into.

We actually are sailing to a different harbor and keeping the boat there for a week, (I still have to work next week; damn it.) The weird thing is that the CG does not want a copy. I contacted them about five years ago regarding this and their response was to file it with you harbormaster. I guess they got too much on their plate. My harbormaster gets a copy along with two other friends and family members.
Am I the only one who does this?
I imagine it might be different for Long Range Cruisers.
We do too, but only on passages. My experience with the USCG was the same.
