Re: How often do you update your charts?
As a recreational sailor, I think it depends on what you're navigating. If you're offshore, even coastal, not much changes on a chart. Harbors are a different matter, whose ATNs do change, along with bridge clearances, etc. Nevertheless, it doesn't matter how recently you purchased your charts, the depth soundings may still be generations old.
My paper charts get fairly old, before being replaced. As noted above, the electronic resources are much more current. One can even download the latest NOAA chart too. Not much reason to keep the printed that up to date anymore.
