As a captain who has made this trip plenty if times, I do know what Cpoe Hatteras is all about. We will be paying strict attention to existing and forecasted weather from at least four highly tespected sources at that point. The Intracoasral is not an option as the boat draws 6'6".

This is a sturdy offshore boat - direct competitor to the top tier of Oyster, Hallberg-Rassy, Passport, Swan, etc. I have delivered Hylases for years - always outside Hatteras - and have never had any concerns at all.

The issue about my "screen name" I don't even understand. Sometimes I use the "r" and sometimes I don't. I can't keep the sites straight and sometimes make a mistake. I understand some possible concern but there's nothing devious about it.
