I do have respect for breaking inlets and chose my weather very carefully for some of them.

As some of you know I wrote a guidebook about the costal route a few years ago, and it remains a work-in-progress. I up-date the text every month and post some of those up-dates on my blog, below.

So, my question: does anyone have any resent information regarding inlets, the inside passage, or harbors along the coast, or does anyone have specific interests that they would like to see someone investigate on-site? We will be visiting Oyster, Wachapreague, and Chincoteague.
Yeah, I'd love to hear about your experiences if you end up getting into Chincoteague! My wife, kids and I love it there. I've dinghied around on the eastern side of the island (brought the dinghy in the car), but I've never taken a boat through there. I've seen some bigger boats anchored in Tom's Cove, but I've heard the channel in requires local knowledge.
