Re: Icw

I wasn't too impressed with the St. Aug inlet 7 years ago, but it did teach me to check the tides and weather conditions carefully before running an unknown inlet. I am going to try some of the...

Re: Heading south

Hey Michael,

Glad you are surviving the cold. Sounds like the bridge maintenance issues might be less mechanical than human on Sundays.

You might want to top off your fuel while in the...

Re: Heading south

I second Jon's recommendation of McClellanville. I stopped there for gas on my way down. I asked if I could stay tied up to the dock while I rode my bike to the store for supplies. The gentleman at...

Re: Heading south

There is a public dock at the NE corner of the anchorage at Wrightsville beach. You can tie up a dinghy or even a boat there. I liked Wrightsville very much, but the weather might have influenced my...

Alligator marina - I spent the night there on the way down. They had a huge stack of eggs at their kitchen, but refused to sell me any except cooked in a breakfast sandwich. They had all the beer,...

Re: Heading south

Michael,

Re: Heading south

I might go down to Elizabeth city to get my rose in that weather. But I would wait for pretty nice weather to cross the Albemarle. It can get pretty rough out there.

Re: Heading south

I guess that is one benefit of going this late, you don't have to dodge all the powerboat wakes. Enjoy the nice weather while it lasts! Supposed to be a rainy one tomorrow.

Re: Heading south

Funny, I spent January at Shelter Cove Marina in Hilton Head on my way south about 5 years ago. Nice enough place, although the bath house was a bit of a hike from my slip. After visiting Hilton...

Michael,

Ya, you and that pelican are way late. It would have been a much more pleasant journey south 2 months ago. Glad you made it down the bay ok. The lower bay can be a rough place this time...

If you are looking for something to do, there is the maritime museum which is a short walk from Deltaville Boat Yard. Also, a small "private" beach at the end of Rte 33 (I don't think anyone would...

Re: Heading south

Do not top off your water tanks in Deltaville. The water stinks of sulfur. Most people go to the spigot outside the fire station to fill water jugs.

Re: How big of an inverter to run AC/Heater?

55 amps sounds a little high considering that most shore electrical supply is 30 amp.
