Yes, but mail that is forwarded can often get lost. Having a relative deal with the important paperwork, like your insurance, boat documentation, and such is probably better than risking losing it in the mail.
I'm not advocating not using a mail-forwarding service, but that you might want to consider having a relative handle the most important paperwork and details, and leave the rest to the mail forwarding service. Think about what happens if your mail forwarding company goes out of business, and your on a bluewater passage, and may not find out about it for a few weeks. If they end up with your insurance and boat documentation, and it is "dropped" in the process of their business shutting down, you could get royally borked for it. I doubt my sister, her husband, and her two kids are all going to disappear without anyone noticing it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
