pixurman is on a distinguished road
Ocean Isle Beach NC

Really appreciate the input. I have motored with rather unseaworthy pontoon boats in the waterway. I have only just "tasted" a bit of the current and waves at Shallotte Inlet and and Lockwoods Folly (north end of Holden Beach). I have been in and out of Little River Inlet many time but only as passanger on 45'' dive boat.

The waves are a concern for me as this is my first attempt. I plan to drop sail, up the centerboard, and motor my way in and out. This way I only need 18 inches of water and think I''ll have better control. I''d like to go for Shallotte Inlet...any advise?

Plans are just to tour in local area.

Thanks, Phil
