Re: Sand Shoal Inlet, VA --- Channel information?

Thanks for the information.

I ran much of the inner passage ~ 5 years ago with my last boat, a Stiletto 27 catamaran. I was able to slip under the bridge (39.5' mast), scraping the VHF on every beam, proceeding at < 1 knot. I think we gave the fishermen on the bank a worthwhile show. With a draft of ~ 15" it was just the tool for the job. Now I have a bit more height and draft and am more circumspect.

But I loved the area and would like to share it with the rest of my family.
