Real charts! Truely, for a changable area like this, go on the NOAA web sites (booklet charts) and confirm the inlet areas and dredged sections each time. Last year's charts are "old."
Anchor away from shore or the bugs will eat you. Actually, in all of our trips (late August) we never really broke out the DEET, except on Chincoteage. Lucky, perhaps.
Tide. Generally 4-5 feet. It is wise to time some runs by the moon, not by your schedule.
A small-med power boat would be a fine choise... with some sense.
