Speaking with Chris Booth, the dockmaster at South Jersey Marina, sounds like Cape May came through Sandy virtually unscathed, he said it was no worse than your average northeaster... The only area that really got hit were the communities facing the Delaware Bay side, when the wind came west on the back side of the storm... But as far as altering the hydrography of the waters south of the point, I can't imagine that there has been real change whatsoever...
Yup dats the channel.
Thanks for the info, usually when these close in channels get filled with sand/silt they usually 're-open' themselves quite quickly thanks to the scoured marl bottom.
Thanks again.
