Very curious about these craft and possible use in Pamlico Sound are for gunkholing where my big boat can't go. Looking for a nice overnighter with lady and two 10/8 year old sailors. I've seen them advertised but never sailed one.

I'm building the 18 ft. version. Take a look at it at my website at
I think it would be a perfect boat for the Pamlico Sound area, and beyond. Given your specs, I'd lean more toward the 23 or 26 ft. model. I've heard a rumor that there is a 29 in Vandemeer, NC, and there are several of varying sizes near Sarasota, FL. I last saw a 26 advertised in Wooden Boat last summer.

You can talk to current NIS owners and get a sense of each model.

Nice boat, and a very well layed out WebPage
I've always liked eggcrate contruction, very light, very strong.
