Re: Bay sailor needed - Deale to Quantico, VA

AIS will only track the big ships and maybe the tugs.

Radar more important IMHO. Definitely a three day even two doable trip. I also agree with the first day push to the Potomac, I would do Glebe / Coan River vs. Smith which is extra distance. That's 60 miles or 12 hours on an average 5 knot day. Of course unless you have good wind directionally this becomes a Solomon's day as you'd be tacking.

Seeing as you fight the current in the Potomac I can understand breaking that trip up into 2 days.
