Who uses the Coast Pilot?

Possible stupid question:

Who here uses the coast pilot? I've managed 11 years or so in the PNW without it, and nobody I have boated with has been seen to use it and I rarely see it referenced (by anyone) but when I've checked it out at our local salty chandlary it seem to have lots of good info. It kind of looks like Charlie's Charts on steroids.

Anyone use it?

BTW, if you're too cheap to buy it, or you're worried your boat's waterline will sink an inch if you bring it aboard, it is free for download (yay tax dollars!)

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
