Kent emailed a question about ramps for a Drascombe Lugger in the upper Outer Banks. Here are some ramps, though I have only used one of them and that was with a power boat. There is a ramp in downtown Manteo, just above the bridge at the left end in the sat photo above. You have to take a channel around the island at right to get out to Shallowbag Bay. From what I have seen there is limited parking there, it would be worth a call to the police or parks department to ask about leaving a vehicle and trailer there. It is #3 on the image below. I do like the Manteo waterfront.
There is a ramp at the west end of the Washington Baum Bridge to Roanoke Island, mostly used by power boaters/fisherman, #4 on the sat image. It's on a channel that runs north/south, not a lot of open water right there so probably not the best ramp to sail from.
Soundside in Kill Devil Hills there is a ramp with lots of parking. I believe, but do not know, that it is a public ramp. If it is public this might be the best ramp to use. It is at the intersection of Dock and Bay, #2 on the sat image. Again, worth a call to the city parks and rec just to confirm that it is public.
And before you cross the Wright Bros. bridge there is a park with ramps near Harbinger, easily seen from 158 before you get to Harbinger. "X" marks the spot above, #1 in the overall image. It opens out onto Currituck Sound with Duck on the other side of the water.
All these ramps open out onto pretty skinny water, from 3 feet deep to 9 or 10. Lots of good sailing down there, just have to watch the depths. Have fun!
