25' , well maybe on the right day. SOUTHWEST 5 TO 10. Ha, Ha in February.
In the Summer I see 21' 40 miles out. I can not believe the ridiculous Advertising of Boat Manufacturers selling 23 to 26 foot boats as Offshore Fishing Machines.

There have been quite a few times that these small boats tuck in behind me to get in. What's wrong with taking a dog fishing. If their Master is out there why not. Many dont realize that there are many NC commercial fisherman fishing Offshore in 35' boats. Commercial fishing is not all BIG BOATS.
