Definitely! My preferred route
is the Pamlico sound, but with my current
boat I have to go Roanoke in lieu of Croatan. My old boat was about 43' air draft
, so it was close, but it was AWESOME being able to take that "sneak" under the 64 bridge via Croatan sound. Very convenient for my transits from albemarle to neuse river.
Just another perspective on thunderstorms in the Pamlico. I generally try to sail from about 0530 to 1400 when there is t storm activity. Getting caught on the sound is not a huge deal though if prepared. If I'm single
handing, and there's lots of lightning
, I'll just toss the anchor
out in >15' water
, and ride it out. Allows me to get away from the helm
, and there's just,not,enough searoom to just reef and set a vane, heave to, whatever. I generally do this well before the storm is on top of me.
