Re: Back on the water!

I've actually done some sailing with a Hobie Getaway for the last couple of seasons off of East Point Lighthouse. On nice days it's nice sailing, but the bay overall is shallow. Depending on the wind direction and which way the tide is going, it can get pretty choppy. Now on the Pearson my biggest concern is the depth. I haven't been more than a couple miles out yet but depth averages between 8 and 12 feet. I draw 5 ft, so you have to be aware. There are better places to go, but with the amount of work I still need to do on the boat, I chose to stay close to home. I just read something on line comparing the Cheasepeak and Delaware Bays as sister bays. The Delaware being the wicked step sister. Don't know if thhelps, but that's my opinion on sailing the Delaware bay.
