Re: Sailing from Little River Inlet, SC to Morehead City, NC

Little River Inlet is well marked.

I am all for going outside, but you might think about staying inside until Masonboro Inlet (a day run north) which would allow you to avoid the shoals and the slue. I haven't been through the slue -- and a quick check online suggests that different people use that term to describe an inner pass and an outer pass (12 mi off). Anyway, the two times I was by there northbound, the first I came in Little River and went back out at Masonboro. The second, I went around the outside marker so I can't advise you . . .. There is just something about cutting through famous shoals that disturbs me. Good luck! Have fun!
