The Manteo/Doughs Creek Anchorage lies east of the Manteo, NC cottage/screw pile lighthouse monument, and well northwest of Shallowbag Bay Channel marker #10.
The Doughs Creek anchorage is a great spot for a NE blow. It blew 20-25 kts over the past two days and there is little fetch and holding is good. My Crealock 34 is riding to a 35 lb CQR and a 33 lb Bruce, but the Bruce is probably not necessary. The dock is a short ride in the dink and everything you could need is at your feet, including the outer banks. It is mid-June, and the beaches are closed to swimming, it is a heck of a nor’ easter for this time of year.
