If seas running 4+ will probably run inside at Cape Fear. Happy crew, happy life!
There are some big rollers offshore right now due to Epsilon but that's supposed to subside somewhat over the next few days. With your draft and those swells, I wouldn't recommend the 4 mile crossing near low tide but the marked crossing at Frying Pan Slough will be fine. Be aware that the ICW between Morehead City and Beaufort will be closed for much of the day on Sunday for powerboat races. Safe travels!
