Nope, I'll be in Coinjock in a few hours. Going to punish myself and do the Albermarle as well today. Manteo tonight unless all else fails (30 kts)

Man! are you into self-flagellation? I did it one time with the wind over 30 out of the north. Never again. I would just have a 32 oz. steak at Coinjock, and take a break. You are one tough hombre.

Do you have stabilizers on your boat? They make beam seas better than head seas any day. Good luck.

Greetings,
Never had the steak at Coinjock BUT have tried their "Prime Rib" 3X....Yes that's three times. If that's prime rib, then the moon is made out of cheese! In a word, ALL 3X....HORRIBLE!!!!! Last time cost me $44 for a chunk of tough flesh that was 1/3 FAT. Not marbled, one third of the end of the cut was a glob of fat. NEVER again. The marina staff at Coinjock are fine. Good southern hospitality.

It's the only route. Next is the Albermarle Sound. That is where it should be the most interesting. The Currituck is extremely shallow and can be hell if the wind is out of the west or east. Not bad today as it was NW so a following quarter sea.

That was a first. I just had a 60' sportfisher warn me on the radio that the sound he just left and I'm headed into had 6-7' steep chop. I hope he overestimated

Daddyo, find you a cove and anchor up. A 60' sportfisherman can handle that stuff. If it was bad for him, lookout.
