Also...please review the EAST COAST
Alerts on the BoatUS forums
for the latest shoaling and bridge reports as well as the SaltySoutheastCruisersNet. DO NOT rely on your chartplotter
line especially at the mouth of the Alligator River.
Better yet...if you want to do some sailing...do not use the Alligator River route
. Instead, head
southEAST at the bottom of the Albemarle and go behind the Outer Banks
and down the Pamilico Sound...then up the Neuse River to join back in to the ICW
. There is free overnight Dockage in Manteo and a GREAT stop in Ocracoke
if you have time...and it is plenty deep and allows you to actually sail for a couple of days!
