HUGOSALT is on a distinguished road
Hi Mike, Have been in and out of North Sea Harbor for many years as my brother owns the house that is on the
peninsula at the south end of harbor. I draw 4'2" ( have not been out for last few years on my boat).
You should have enough water in the channel especially
at hi tide (which is less than 2 feet). Stay in channel
sailboats usually are moored/anchored at edge of channel.
Half the time I go soft aground on soft mud bottom because I don't keep track of tide or the channel for that matter! Important...line up outer buoys from the north
don't cut as it shoals outside the aproach channel.
I will check with my brother if they have dredged recently
and let me know when you are going...if he is around he
will surely be happy to be your pilot (even though he may be sitting on his porch on the vhf or cell phone!)
Best, Hugo
