Hey and thanks Jim, We live with 10 miles of each other we should sail sometime. I have been sailing the Morgan river Beaufort River, and the Port Royal sound for a couple of years now. Light air most of the time. a lot of Shoaling. Great place to sail.

My question, Where the Port Royal Sound dumps into the Atlantic Ocean is in a south easterly direction. How far north or south would I have to run north or south of that current on a out going tide for the effects to calm down?
Thanks Curtis
