I brought her up from Charleston SC to Mobjack bay in December, but that was a no nonsense motoring trip - it was the week before Christmas and pretty damned cold!

When you have the time, any other suggestions as far as anchorages or marinas would be great
Yes, from Mobjack, go to Solomon's Island, then Still Pond, then Cape May, perhaps waiting out the tidal current at Reedy Island. In nice weather, you could easily do an overnight to Cape May from Mobjack via the Northern Channel/Cape Charles. Check out my threads on Delmarva Circumnavigations here. Feel free to call me if you have any questions on the Chesapeake to Cape May portion of the trip at eight zero four seven four zero six four six four.

I second the recommendation of Eldridge's.
