witzgall is on a distinguished road
Yeah, I know about the inside route. We will be coming to Beaufort from New Bern, down the ditch. Core sound looks like a no-go for me too. I was just hoping to avoid back tracking.

  1. You can take the ICW N from Morehead City to Neuse River, then you have almost a straight shot to Ocracoke.
  2. There is some waterway through Core Sound but my charts say 5'3" will not make it. You should find a sailor out of Beaufort or Harkers Island to ask.
Enjoy the trip.
