Re: ICW from VA to FL

Sigh... My reasoning was I wanted to avoid the ICW, I'm figuring 4 knts average speed so it's about 40 hours from the Chesapeake to Ocracoke. Planed on visiting friends in Oriental. I guess it won't kill me to do the ICW for the first part.

I spent my summers as a kid sailing small boats on Albemarle sound, I'm well aware of how thin the water is and how it can get whipped up in no time.

Thanks for the input
