Taylor Creek runs along Beaufort’s waterfront and the “jig” David Mentions is at the creek’s east end. The Creek connects several narrow cuts through Back Sound that are often used by shallow draft vessels to reach the anchorage behind Lookout Bight.
My question is, has anyone traveled from Beaufort, NC down Taylor’s Creek toward Harkers Island recently? Is the little jig at the end of Taylor’s Creek passable to vessels drawing 3-1/2 feet, and is it reasonably accurately portrayed on the latest charts? Also, is the channel past Harkers Island and through Barden Inlet to Cape Lookout similarly passable and well charted?
