You can easily run the rock pile in a 20FT WA. You just need to know the proper line to take. We run it in a 38' all day long. The lowest it gets so far this year has been 6'. It saves you a good 20-25 minutes then running out to the bell. Don't do it on this word alone and watch someone else run it but you have about a 20 feet channel to run through. You just have to know or see where it is at if its your first time.

Always run by the Rocks. It is normally the calmest part of the inlet and I've never ever had a problem going this way. Just watch someone else do it and then do it yourself. It is a much quicker way to run the inlet than coming in at the bell, unless you are coming from the south that it.

... and the inlet is no walk in the park these days... get the end of the outgoing and a SW wind and the shoals on either side make the channel like a 4' wave pool.... the north shoal has shifted over enough to throw breakers on and over the #4 nun....

I have taken the Rockpile route and run around the entire inlet to go South in less time than it takes to follow the channel in poor conditions...

Good advice by all !!! The rock pile is the only way to go. Just stay between the rocks and the breakers and you will not have a problem. It doent look good to follow someone this weekend with NE wind predicted. Good luck
