Re: Fastest route from Annapolis to NYC?
I don't know about making it with a 7' draft, but when I stopped in Manasquan I anchored in a neat little spot out of the inlet and hence safe from the nasty current. Not far into the inlet was a marked channel, probably 1/2 mile, to a bascule bridge that then opened into a neat little harbor with good holding...
No idea if you could squeeze down there with such a large draft or whether it got slammed by the storm, but it was a great option as it was out of the way of the commericial fleet and out of the current... Maybe chef2sail has more accurate and up to date info..
I believe the area that you are referring to is called " The Glimmer Glass"
Just a guess..7 ft. draft might be pushing it at anything but high tide, but I'll defer to more recent local knowledge. I haven't been through there in awhile.
