Thanks to my friend Troy Moore, who manages Inlet Watch near Carolina Beach, I recently spent a good hour or so recording various Boat Sounds. Troy and his staff were very helpful and I appreciate their hospitality. Though it was a bit cool, it was an absolutely beautiful day out to grab some sounds. Unfortunately, we were unable to get sounds from an Otter family who live at Inland Watch. That would have been the icing on the cake! I used my DPA 4060 mins (stereo pair) in a Rode Blimp along with my Zoom F8 recorder to capture the sounds.
