Welcome smitty, hope you get your boat to Charleston, lots of great adventures to be had on the weekends. I've done a good bit of sailing there since its the closest port to NC mountains. Your cruising grounds just opened up considerably. You'll figure out the tides and currents soon enough.
I spent a winter on the Stono, never put out the inlet though. Did go out north Edisto - short little ocean sail to the harbor entrance. We have family
there, looking forward to checking out the condo docks up the folly, they sound reasonably priced.
