They are wondering what kind of coffee you're brewing. Is that a Berger on the right?

Are you going to anchor or sneak in at Osprey?

That's a Stevens. Good eye, very close but the Stevens tend to be beamier. I love the old classic Bergers! What we call Audrey Hepburn boats.

I'm anchored in Enterpise Oxbow. Stayed here two years ago. Last anchorage north before Myrtle. Beautiful place and my neighbor hear agrees.

I'll probably go overnight for the Pamlico at that point. Thanks for doing the math. I must say I don't care to anchor at Wrightsville.

If it were me... Push to Mile Hammock (another 35 statute miles) and get some sleep.

Hey Mark...

Dunno if you have done the math yet, but you are looking at a flooding tide between 12n and 6p. With a 20k+ north blow, the Cape Fear could be a REAL mess this afternoon!

So, if I were a betting man, I'd look for an overnight around Masonboro Inlet, then check the winds for the off-coast run to Beaufort inlet.

But, though winds subside Tuesday, they are still 15+ in the morning. In a beefy DeFever with twins, I'd do it if it looked for certain the winds lay down.

Hey, everyone makes the rock pile sound so ominous - can you take some pics there of the worst parts? Thanks!

Safe travels.

Ben

Ben,
Bess has a lot of pics she can show you. In fact, she posted a lot here. IIRC, they are in a thread that was pics of our trip from Carolina Beach to Georgetown, SC. It's ominous for sure, but keep it in the middle and you're fine. We first went thru at high tide and didn't see anything, however, when we returned, it was low and you can see the rocks. TBH, I would always want to go thru at low so I can keep an eye on it should we need to pass or be passed thru there.

Just did the math again. Looks like he'll be at Southport at or around slack tide. Still, 25k blow from the north could make it a rough trip.

Tom-
Until he makes that left turn after Southport, Mark might have some beam seas to contend with. Better put the breakables on the deck. From then on, favorable currents, I would imagine. If a bit rocky...

Tom, good call - I hear the low tide theme regularly. I need to get back to work, but I'll check Bess's pics. Thanks!!
