Re: Baltimore to Upper Hudson River

Most of these responses are larger boats than yours and will have higher hulls speeds and larger engines to motorsail if needed. To be safe, you may need as much as 2X the time they took and with the currents involved and your lower hull speed, you may need to anchor and wait for both favorable tides, currents, and wind conditions. Just a reality check from a small boat owner.
