How does one "washout" a boat trip? Too much water?
Larry H has taken up residence in Ketchikan and is not entirely happy w our weather.
Here we were a week ago and we go out tomorrow to K town.
From the rain forest.
*Eric, Cape lookout is about a six mile offshore*along Shackleford Banks.* It can be a very rough section of water.* It is the South end of the NC Outerbanks.* It is protected inside the "hook", but you must get back.* It is very easy to get weathered in there for a few days.* It is a beautiful, unique place; but you need a good weather window if going out there for a few days.
Beaufort Inlet is the inlet used.* It is deep and well marked, but can play havoc on a boat at displacemet speeds.* When I was using it frequently, I had a planing hull that I could keep on the back of a wave.* I wouldn't recommend that Tom and Bess take their trawler out there in any weather until they have had more offshore experience.
I have 4 cracked teeth (one capped) from fishing around Cape Lookout.* Old and slow sometimes beats young and bold.
