Re: Planning a trip up the East River, Timing?

Yam... let's look at tidal currents. in order to arrive the battery at dead low tide..from any point would have to buck a 2 knot current coming down through the narrows and the hudson, If one simply waited an hour two they could ride the horizontal flow of water up through the narrows and all the way up the east river.
I'd rather do 7 knots than 3..
