Depending on where you look there is differing information about which channel All ships calls should be made entering the restricted navigation zone.

 

some sites show CH18 for all ships call.

some show CH19

Which is Right?  this seems like a recipe for disaster with differing channels published.

And how many people are actually doing this?  I don't think i have heard any calls except form Ferries (cant remember which channel though!)

It changed to ch 18 last summer, during a bigger reshuffle of VHF frequencies.
I’ve always done it on my boat, and it’s always been done on every boat I’ve been through on. It seems smart to do, the opening is small, the current can be strong and waves suddenly much bigger, meaning you can spend much longer than expected getting through, and the ferries want it all to them selves when they go through. They will ask you to wait if your eta is close to theirs. They will also report you to the HM to be fined if you don’t call and are an issue.

The PDF you linked is from the 2014-2015 season, which is why it says the wrong frequency.

Yes, always 18 and dual watch.  Not something you want to forget, since it’s clearly instructed on the chart.

I've found yachts and launches mostly make the call.

Available for Android and Apple?

Yeah available in both. Search Marlborough Sounds Cruise Guide. It was made by the council and launched maybe 2 summers ago to try and replace the old book of a similar name. It’s fairly handy, doesn’t replace the book imo, but still useful.
