The Carolina Loop


In a recent BoatsUS magazine there was an article about trips other than the Great Loop.

The Carolina Loop intrigued me and I want to know more about it. I have a 36' Pearson 36 with 5.5' draft. Does anyone know if I would be able to make that trip with my boat?

I'm thinking about doing it this September.

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers - j. Ballou

Re: The Carolina Loop

If itís what Iím thinking of yes. Edenton, Elizabeth City and a few other places? We poked Adeline that area a few years ago, saw mention of the loop. We did half or a bit more and we draw 6-1/2í.

No, wait, Iím thinking of the Albamarle Loop.

Although one could turn into the other. Obviously we didnít do the Dismal Swamp Canal.

Rumor has it there's a Bar in the Dismal Swamp that has a deep water dock with NO SLIP FEE for as long as you keep on buying their beer.
