Re: It's Just Not Fair! I'm thinking you would have been in for a surprise if you made the trip, just paddled out near Wrighsville Beach which is a good bit south and always warmer than hatteras. Water temp here is at 46 and the air temp was around 34. I was in hatty a month ago and the water temps were 45-46 im guessing it's around 40 right now. Got a few months to go before it will hit 70 up there.
Re: It's Just Not Fair! i dont wanna ruin ur entire sob story here but im going to assume the buoy is just messed up because here in st. augustine about 4 days ago the water temperature was allegedly 70 and that was complete bs it was 56 and still is the buoys just glitch sometimes like swell lover said. I'm sure you're spot on with the air temp though hahaha
