Looking for NC live a boards

Ahoy,
I am looking for liveaboards in North Carolina willing to talk about their life for an upcoming book about life on the Intracoastal. I would appreciate any and all contacts. The book will also include those who work on the ICW--so if you know any oystermen or women, barge operators, or bridgetenders, I'd love to talk to all.
Thanks in advance,
Kate Walsh

The problem you have here Kate, is one of semantics. You need to target ICW cruisers, rather than NC liveaboards, as NC is just a part of the ICW. Also, the NC part is quite different than the rest of the ICW, as it is mostly open bodies of water, rather than channels.

It would also help if you posted some references. Also, the reason you chose this subject, would probably ellict a bit more interest from those who might have useful information. As it is, it sounds like you want to make some bucks off of other people's experiences. So a bit more elaboration, might serve you well.

Kate: You might want to consider a visit to the "Southbound Cruisers Rally" in New Bern. Oct 24-27 ( I think).

We are new liveaboards from NC but have been on the move with the plans of only returning to NC for short visits now. As said, the ICW in NC is very different from the rest we have found, (the hard way). We have meet a large variety of different liveaboards as we go from those that work and stay in a marina for years to those that are just chasing the good weather(that would be us)
I'm not sure you could get a true understanding with out living aboard yourself.

Not only is this a three and a half year old thread, the op has never been heard from since. It's probably not worth staying up late to follow this.

Are we there yet?
