Sometimes I can't believe how well you remember LI even though you have been living down in the Carolina's for how long? Of course, it helps to have free online charts of the area to refresh ones memory.
Since I have not personally done this 'inside' route in a shoal draft sailboat I can only offer an educated guess from looking at the charts as to how easy it would be (mast on deck of course). That is why I suggest you ask about this route on a power boat forum as I am fairly certain there are folks who go this way on a regular basis (Cruiser's Forum has a power boat forum - none on Sailnet that I know of). Local knowledge trumps educated guesses any day.
I'll bet a lot of this ride is quite beautiful and I'll also bet that there will be currents in the narrowest spots that are effected by the 2' or so ocean tides. I would want a reliable engine, good weather window and a tide and pilot manual like 'Eldridge' as well as good charts before I headed out.
Cam, how come you are not a moderator? Oh, that's right, something about some Scottish plaids. One side of my family belongs to the Campbell tartan.
