Ocracoke and Hatteras Inlets

Hi all;

We are taking off for two weeks starting tomorrow. After spending some time down at Point lookout, one option is to go outside to Ocracoke, if we can navigate either the Ocracoke or Hatteras inlets. We draw 5'3" The charts are ambiguous on the subject. Any good local knowledge out there?

Are these inlets currently navigable for us, weather permitting? I have navigated inlets via powerboat many times, but not aboard a sailboat.

Any information or advice would be appriciated.
