Maybe I was a bit harsh. I respect your posts.
Of course its a sailboat in the water, but you are prohibited from sailing through the C&D Canal ( 18 miles) and also trying sailing down the Delaware is a mission of failure and with light winds, no place to anchor, and 48 miles of shallow choppy water with a 3 knot current which reverses every 6 hours could take a few days vs 6 hours of motoring ( almost every sailboat transits this stretch of the Delaware by motoring), then to attempt a NJ Inlet by sail only with no motor backup let alone Barneget is foolish.
There are places where even if you have a sailboat, not using its motor is not prudent. This is not the wide open ocean.
