I sail a 19' com-pac with air draft of 25', so i'm good @ Indian river, but don't
go out much. The city dock in Lewes is a great place to stay(if available). I think the 1st 6hrs are free. Don't know about the marina. A friend sails to O.C.
then to chincoteaque often in a 25' Erickson. As a matter of fact he started
keeping his boat down there, says the sailing is great. I do go up the canal
all the time, but with our fishing boat. Never considered doing the trip with
the sail boat.
