With a Tashing 50 - what is your mast
height? Anything over 62 feet is probably going to present a problem. Also how maneuverable is your boat. You will be spending some time "backing and filling" waiting for bridge openings. You can get stuck for up to almost an hour waiting for the next bridge opening.
- - I normally plan 20 to 30 nm per day from Norfolk to Albemarle Sound and then 50nm per day south of there. Once you get to Morehead City/Beaufort you can switch and run outside in the Atlantic Ocean
and make some good time. Otherwise you are looking at a very long trip if you stay inside the ICW
all the way.
- - In Georgia
can get down to 5 ft water depth
at low tide so you will have to plan to run based on high tide which will also slow down your per day mileage.
- - However, on the other hand, there are tooooo many great places to stop and explore so the trip will fly along even if it takes a lot of days.
