Morehead City, NC

I am not the final word but have sailed around Morehead City. The inlet from the Atlantic is treacherous with the wrong tide. The ICW is wide between the mainland and Bogue''s Sound but very shallow outside the narrow ICW channel. I have grounded a Hobie in there! If you can get out the inlet and behind Cape Lookout there is some water but not much. The other side of Morehead City on the west side of the bridges is the ICW heading North. Looks inviting but have never seen a sailboat outside the markers. It would be over an hour to get to Pamlico Sound, actually the Neuse River I guess, for great sailing close to Oriental. We are thinking about a one year stopover at Matthew''s Point marina - www.matthewspoint.com
