cape hatteras in february what gear should I bring?
While the frequency for storms is highest from late fall to early spring, there are also plenty of days when its not storming. For instance today the winds are less than 10 knots. If your friend is experienced I would have no problem with this trip. There are plenty of places along the coast and before hatteras that you can get a weather up date before continuing on. (Beaufort or Wrightsville Beach). I would imagine the mast is too tall on a 47 foot boat for the ICW. (IT was on the 47 foot boat I was just on) BTW avg temps in feb are 47 degrees. Bring plenty of layers to go under your foul weather gear and you should be fine. Good luck and tell us about it when you get back.-thomas
