The Searunner 37 is a power boat with no mast. There is really no issue making this trip inside or out, except that I would suggest you stay inside from Beaufort, NC and go up the Chesapeake and down the Delaware. You can check out our Beach House site for notes on our trip up from Beaufort, SC to Maryland and down from Maryland to Stuart, FL. Any passage in open water, either offshore or in a large bay, needs to be weather dependent. Running outside especially, take in mind mileage from the waterway, out to the sea buoys and back in when calculating runs. Be sure you know where the safe inlets are and what your time frame will be to run them. Many no wake zones on the inside will slow you down. In addition, you will need to slow down to pass boats that don't go as fast as you do. Keep in mind that a break down on the inside, especial in a new to you boat, will be an inconvenience, but having a breakdown outside will be a very long and unpleasant experience. Just a few things to consider. Chuck
