I have a 27' sailboat with a 4' draft. I am curious as to how difficult the Carolina Beach Inlet is to cross over into the open or is it a safer bet to head up to Masonboro Inlet? Also, how strong is the current? Too much for a 27' sailboat in the Atlantic heading from Baldhead Island to these inlets? Is it even worth the effort?

Thanks for the tips! I avoided Carolina Beach inlet like the plaque. Unfortunately the storm off the coast caused a bit of a chop so I just stayed on the inside. The weather was perfect. Maybe next time I'll head outside via the Masonboro inlet.
