Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

The only reason to consider those inlets in a minimally powered vessel is to consider how to avoid them at all cost. Maybe you can think about it in a twin Cat diesel Blackfin that makes 30 knots, draws 3' and has the power to punch through but not with a sailboat with a little aux. diesel.

Alberg 35: With a philosophical flourish Cato throws himself upon his sword; I quietly take to the ship.
