I have just returned from a very quick two day trip to the Oriental area of Pamlico Sound. I'm thinking of taking my boat there from Florida
in July, for the rest of the summer and possibly the winter.
It looks like a very fine protected cruising ground, and nice to see a predominance of sailboats for a change, instead of the roar of stink-pots.
I would like to ask for observations from anyone living aboard
in the Sound, on all aspects of the area.
We would like to find a marina base, and were pleased to hear prices less than half what we are paying in Florida
. We won’t be living aboard
all the time, but from the base we want go exploring whenever we can, maybe for a month at a time.
My schooner draws 6’6” so I know this will limit us somewhat, but there are still a lot of rivers and cuts we can get into.
Thanks in anticipation JR
