So I plan to run my 22' seacat out of Teach's during the month of May, and when I was in Hatteras back in early April, I noticed the ferry route ran way out into the sound due to significant shoaling. Is there a short-cut around the south end of the north side of Hatteras Island to get out to the ocean, or do small boats need to run the ferry channel as well to the main inlet channel?

thanks, Bonafide
