Re: Who uses the Coast Pilot?

I like the US CG Coastal Pilot publications.
I haven't read much more then about my local area but I think the advice about crossing inlets is well worth taking along with you if your are on a long journey staying in unfamiliar harbors and inlets.
There is quite a lot of verbatum (words) but it does convey what you need to know.
It is free to download for the entire US coastal waters. I don't know why anyone would leave their mooring without it on a long journey.
