I've also splashed at Georgetown, Hilton Head and Skidaway Narrows a little south of Savannah.

Best, safest, easiest bet for a first timer is the ramp at Isle of Palms...very protected, no current and floating docks - but unlike most other Charleston ramps, there is a charge.

Thanks and yep,Inman.I live right off 26.What I was think was leaving the tow pig as far inland as possible, when I set off to do the loop.I'll be out during hurricane season and would like to feel that it's safer than being on the coast.I also considered dropping the boat at a marina,leave it on the hard,and get someone to drop me and my gear off a few days later.

Sorry for hi jacking the thread. Send me to the Bahamas to walk the plank.Preferably in shallow water close to a tropical isle.
