Jerry Perrin is on a distinguished road
I sail out of Indian river but am on waiting list for Pilot town marina. The canal
can be quite tricky on the changing tides. Also depending on draft, you can
be sitting in mud during low tide. The inlet can also be a little tricky, and a
lot of pleasure, and head boats going in and out. On the bay, wind againsed
tide makes for some choppy conditions. Weather can change very quickly(
the saying goes, if you don't like the weather in De. wait 10mins). Lots of
BIG freighters in the channel, and at anchorages. All that being said, the bay
can be quite beautyful, and fun. You can sail out to the Harbor of refuge or
breakwater drop your hook, and spend the day, or night, enjoying the peace and quiet, and there are always doulphins playing. You will need to keep watch for the Cape May-Lewis ferry. It does not like to deviate course, and
will sound horn for you to MOVE. Hope I was of some help.
