You might want to check out Core
Creek Marina, which is next door to Jarrett Bay. Core
Creek also hauls out. We're going there the first of March to haul and do some maintenance
Cape Lookout is great, but as the previous poster said, the weather
can make it miserable.
Beaufort is one of our favorite places in all of NC. The creek is good for dropping the hook. The town's waterfront is great for walking, and there's a great martime museum too. Lot's to explore in Beaufort.
