Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Waiting to see if jon or Dave know these delivery skippers. S/V Audsicious might as he is from Annapolis.

I dont have their experinece but I question anyones judgement to run Oregon Inlet even on a calm day. The other two Hatteras and Okrakoke are extremely dangerous also and have shifting bouys. I have gone out Okrakoke once in a large power boat and would never attempt it in a sailboat in any weather.

March,,,the season on Noreeasters.....passing around Hatterass.... storm potentiallly in a day.........not sound judgement IMHO.

I am glad they are alive.
