Neighbor told me their main ship might be in Morehead today, can anyone confirm that?

They ask to rent a slip here at Olde Towne but they draft 16 or 17 ft and we don't have that much water. I saw GO Quest the SpaceX ship go out the inlet today with what looked like 2 faring halves from the last space shot.

She just came in through the Inlet 30 minutes ago. Docked on the West side of the Port.

Anyone know if there actually doing some kind of tour?? Shark fishing (strictly catch and release) is my 14yr old son's favorite thing to do and he would really enjoy meeting some of these guys.

Theyre up there. They just left a dead whale floating off SC which had multiple white sharks on it and couldn't land one.

Sharks were feeding and willing to eat, place was loaded...i was there for 4 days prior and tagged a lot. I'm just not sure they know what theyre doing. The video they posted said they hooked 3 and lost all 3. With the resources and amount of people working, you'd think their odds would be better. They were off SC last year for 3 weeks and didnt get one either. About 3 years ago they were off SC and one of them got hurt and was in the hospital for a couple of weeks. I think the media builds them up to be great, but in reality theyre kinda lost down here.

They are moored over at the port right now, I might go over and volunteer my services as I always catch Sharks, especially when I don't mean too.
