I'd not "hope" to catch the tide as it flows toward Delaware, and from your previous posts, it is clear that you are more than hoping, but are planning to catch the tide. If you miss the tide, anchor (before or after the C&D) and wait for the tide. Otherwise you will be bucking a significant current.
