Re: Worse than a garage... I may need help

A very real issue I have on the MC is that when I am fully loaded for cruising the thru hulls for the cockpit drains/galley sink/bilge pump are awash. Obviously they do not have seacocks. I lighten...

Re: Hello from the Carolinas

Another welcome. The area around the Neuse is hard to beat IMO. Has been home for the MC for all of her 42 yrs. The combination of multiple anchorages, wide rivers and open Sounds plus the access to...

Re: Worst place in the U.S. to sail...

Having covered much of the same ground I agree with Gary but St Andrew Sound gets my vote. There is a reason they went to the trouble to create an alternate route. Chart 11504...

Re: Fishfinder as a depthsounder

The original depth sounder, placed below the mast step, died about 7 years ago. The Marian Claire is a wood boat 1 1/4 " mahogany planking so no way to "see" thru the hull and I did not want to pull...

Re: Trip Planning Estimated travel time

I have made this trip several times. Lots of things play into the total time. Do you plan to anchor out or stay at marinas? Some times you have to stop early or push late to make an anchorage/marina....

Re: Heading south

How is the anchorage as far as derelict boats? I anchored there several years back and they had started posting, big orange stickers, on the "abandoned" boats. Just bypassed G town the last couple of...

Re: Near-shore tide what to expect. "Need some Guidance"

Itgoshen. Have you spent time at the inlet around posted high and low tide and observed the current? The current often lags behind the posted time for high and low. If for example you plan to be...

Re: Heading south

Guessing Swansboro. The bottom there changes all the time so no worries. The long stretches between inlets on the ICW can give you a great ride or a tough day. Most of SC and GA are to cut up to even...
