sail975 is on a distinguished road
Delaware City and offshore NJ

Watch out for overhead powerlines at Delaware City Marina. We've got ~60 mast and made it but it was VERY nerve wracking and I don't remember the tide. I recall asking for the clearance and them just being told not to worry about it. Everything indeed turned out fine.

If you can post information on your offshore passage off NJ I'd be interested. We plan on making that trip sometime, curious what kind of conditions you faced- wind and waves. Also what kind of time you were able to make and whether you sailed the whole way or motor sailed. How was the shipping traffic approaching New York harbour?

Thanks for any info!
