Just off the ICW past Snead's Ferry. It's a fantastic little anchorage.

Just north of the intersection of the New River and ICW at Camp Legeune. Good anchorage. The Marine Corps sometimes has activities going on there. By the way that ICW intersection is very subject to shoaling. Take it slowly across there. The markers can be confusing. The north side of the intersection usually shoals the worst.

Hey Mark -

If your leg is really bothering you today, you might want to hole up at Southport. The Cape Fear is going to be nasty when the tide starts coming in. It's going to be nasty anyway with the regular current and the N wind. Add in the opposing tide and well....yuck. Rest a little and get some good food.

There's an anchorage at N33.55.45.85-ish/W078.03.27.06-ish. Just your side of Southport. We haven't tried it but heard it's a good spot. There's a Swedish vessel in there now.

But then again, the stateportpilot web cam doesnt look tooo nasty.

I think your referring to Dutchman's Creek. I've been in there a few times, it is very, very nice. The submerged dam at the entrance is a bit scary though but the water is usually plenty high.

Daddyo-

You're just passing Shallotte Point-look to the left and I lived about 750 yards up river from the Point. Wave when you pass by, my ex got the waterfront house!

DAddyo-the only conversion needed would be to landlubber and I don't think that would work for you! It did not work for me!

PLACE YOUR BETS... PLACE YOUR BETS!!!

-Bess says he will go for it up the Cape Fear and drop the hook in the Carolina Beach bight.
-I think he'll press on to Middle Creek or Sloop Creek, but not get as far as Mile Hammock or push thru the night.

No heat on anything that may be bleeding (read: strained, stretched, bruised or torn) for 24 to 48 hours. Ice only during that time to decrease the bleeding in the damaged tissues. Then ice alt with heat.
