We actually are doing something we've never before done in taking the ICW from Southport to Myrtle Beach. We always go outside.
We left Portsmouth VA yesterday at 10:30 am, ran offshore around Hatteras and just fueled up at Bald Head Island at noon or so today. We are back offshore running to Savannah. Wind and seas at our back for the most part seas less than 4' with some swell coming in off the port side. Nice ride so far.

Are you in the 130'? What does it draw? We draw 7' or so, so I'm hesitant to run the ICW.

I'll amend that last, seas are now running up to 4' but still on our stern. And still a nice ride.

If the build to much well just head inshore where they are smaller. Trying to save some time by running point to point and not hugging the coast line at this time.

We only have 5' draft on the boat we're in plus were heading to Myrtle Beach regardless so Little River Inlet would have taken us inside.

Your timing is perfect as each of the areas you're leaving is going to pick up behind you.

We left Bald Head at 7:00 this morning. All docked and on dry land now in Myrtle Beach. Running to Charlotte for a couple of days, leaving Myrtle Beach on Monday. Then heading home on a delivery type run.

What type of boat do you have? I'm sure you mentioned it in the past but I missed it.

He has a fast boat that's elusive. So maybe a stealth vessel.

Just kidding.

Seriously though, I've asked before and it seems that that information is classified.

Stealth boat would be fun. Maybe some model built for military normally but built this time for pleasure could be interesting.

We have nothing extremely fast and nothing extremely slow. No Fountain's to do 90 mph and nothing 6 knots.
