Updating charts, using "Notice to Mariners"
I am studying in preparation for a navigation class. Living inland I have been away from real chart for a while. I do have a chart of the Puget Sound area I bought last year in a quest to charter there someday and to have a study tool.
I have taken a look around to Notice to Mariners. From the brief studying of the Notices it seems most issues are temporary work, or closures or lights out or temporary buoy, basically temporary changes to the ATONs which are put back to the configuration listed on the chart later.
In order to get my chart accurate can I just look to the current Notices and apply the changes. Or do I need to go back to the date the chart was printed and update all changes since then? Is there a way to find all the cumulative permanent changes made in the last year or so?
When I am looking at Notices to Mariners i can find local one specific to Region #13 which covers all the PNW, is there a way to filter it further to limit the ones pertinent to a specific area covered by my chart?
