Re: Marina destruction

To be fair heading down the ICW is not always easy, especially in a tall deep draft boat. At 63í Air draft and 6-1/2í water draft we are pretty much at the size limit, though some bigger have pushed through. Going through Georgia you sometimes have to wait for tide to move. Some places you may need a low tide to clear a bridge. Traveling at night is near impossible.

It donít know, I might have headed North, up the Allegator-Pungo and then further up the sounds. But that is a pretty desolate area without much resources. Someone might feel real lonely there. A few years ago heading to Edenton our exhaust elbow broke off. We got a 10 hour tow to Roanoke. A whole lot of not much around there, we like it. But I think you would be pretty sage with sufficient ground tackle.
