Spent the night there a couple of years ago. Good place, out of the way to get to Oriental and the M&M restaurant but they provided a car. It was $1.00 a foot during the winter. The BEST showers on the ICW, bar NONE! Almost worth the trip just to see those showers. All ceramic, multi head, steam room option, massage, huge.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

I was seeking cheap marinas last night. I accedentally called mathews.
Well matthew was not going to be in tomorrow, so he offered, if we were willing to go the 4 miles out of the way and deal with a shallow bottom, we could spend the night for free...!!!
I felt like a bulldozer, and parked at his T dock perpendicular, but how awesome!
Its something you don't really hear about anymore.
We were warm and tosty thanks to matthew last night.
So, if your less then 5'5" draft, consider this marina.
Its much cheeper then oriental.

Give me a shout if you need info on Beaufort dockage, anchorage, restaurants or want to meet for a beer or borrow my car for a couple of hours. There is a Walmart and West nearby. I live here aboard my boat.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Scoobert:

You may want to brace yourself for some weather.

You'll have today to get to Beaufort, if you can make it. But, I wouldn't go much further.
Tue evening and Wed will be rough on the water. I would look for a storm hole and ride it out.
Along the beaches 15 to 20 miles South from where you were at Mathews Point Marina the wind and surf are going to get slightly challenging it not down right dangerous.

I don't want to be an alarmist, but you may want to take this NOAA report under advisement.

544 AM EST TUE NOV 26 2013

...HIGH SURF AND MINOR COASTAL FLOODING WILL IMPACT PORTIONS OF

THE ADVISORY AREA...PRODUCING STRONG SHORE BREAK...DANGEROUS RIP
CURRENTS AND LOCALIZED BEACH EROSION.

A COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY INDICATES THAT ONSHORE WINDS AND TIDES
WILL COMBINE TO GENERATE FLOODING OF LOW AREAS ALONG THE SHORE.

You're the Captain, but I would batten down.

I'm sure Beaufort will feel some of this. It will be cold out there and hard to bring a boat to dock if there are significant wind and waves trashing you about. This isn't a good time to negotiate for the best price for fuel, wait until you get away from the US, fuel prices will certainly give you sticker shock. For now, keep your fuel level high and have that second anchor standing by. Be sure to anchor in deep water, high water will leave you beached when it finally recedes. Be ready with Plan B and Plan C, if necessary.

Low pressure system should move off Thursday

Good luck and sail safe.

Re: Transit Time? NY-FL

Is that old dock near Core Creek available? The shrimpers dock.

It can be very hard work on the ICW in these conditions. Stretches in NC south of Beaufort are very close to the ocean, only some barrier islands. Bogue Sound can blow up and it's pretty shallow (unless they dredged recently). Also once you get to inlets it gets worse. Best to hunker down.
