    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. Old House channel was a piece of cake but knowing the marking convention ahead of time, prevented confusion. I draw 4.5′ but have no depthsounder and regret I have no report on depths. Surprisingly few cruising vessels here, I guess it is well off the ICW. I’m really enjoying my stay here in Manteo before heading to the Chesapeake.
