After reading all the great input here, and talking with Paul at the Hatteras TowBoat station, I'm thinking that ice cream stop in Morehead City
sounds like a plan! I'll save Ocracoke
inlet for another day in a shallower draft
I'm now planning to run to Sea Gate marina on Adams
Creek for the night, and then on to Ocracoke
. Any estimates on how long to budget
for that run if I keep it around 10 knots once into the sound?
Much appreciation to all for the feedback and suggestions.
