You're likely already aware that most of the protected waters along the Atlantic ICW
are limited to clearance under 65' bridges. Beaufort
, NC has the best inlet for you, but the 65' bridge at the Core
Canal would block your access to New Bern. You can reach New Bern via Pamlico Sound, but you would need to enter the sound by the way of Hatteras Inlet or Orcracoke Inlet and they are not as reliable.
