arbarnhart This may be true in other states as well, but NC really makes boat choice difficult. Obviously the big briny deep is just right there, but if you can sail in the shallows, there are a lot more places to sail (without cnstantly being onedge about staying in the channel, or sharing it with much traffic).

sailingdog A stern anchor is a good idea when gunkholing. It can be deployed very quickly in an emergency.

yotphix While you are having fun exploring also be sure to have an anchor at the ready if necessary to prevent being driven further aground and have some strategies worked out for various ungrounding scenarios. Also probably doesn't hurt to have a dinghy in tow.
Last, reduce sail if you are at all unsure, slow is good in that case.

My buddy with on old swing keel C&C Corvette calls the keel his depth alarm. It just swings up harmlessly but still lets you know when you only have a couple of feet to spare.

USCGRET1990 Explore an area slowly under power or sail until you learn and /or map out the depths and get to know the area. Also, explore on a rising tide.
