Re: C&D Canal

Good deal. Dave worked out perfect senerio for a one shot trip. Arriving around midnight. If comfortable traveling at night, great way to go.

If you choose to hold at Reedy still, his data corroborates mine above leaving there at 5 AM in the morning. Glad to see my figures match up with the professional.

I actually give you a boost to 7 knots SOG traveling with the current.

Also no need to follow channel exactly. I cut over to Jersey side at articial island and come ear channel at Cross Ledge only. You also an make a beeline for the Canal after EggPoint across the flats, just watch for fish taps, no need to go to Miah Maul,

He. Is correct about Cape Helopen. If you are on a mission best place. We go to Cape May, Utsches Marina for 1.50 ft for a fuel up for the trip up the coast and a great meal at Lazy Bones a short walk.

Also stop at Lobster House fish market on way to get super fresh seafood for the next nights dinner.

Dave
