The advice has been a big help in planning a safe route. In reviewing the LI charts it looks like on the outside either Manasquan or Jones inlet are deep enough for my 5'3" draft and well placed for day hops to the NJ Shore. It would save me about 2 days. Not that Im in a hurry but Ive seen enough of Manhattan & Queens from the ground. Are these two inlets dangerous entrances? Caleb have you sailed them?
I might take you up on that crew offer if your are still retired. It would be nice to have company on that part of the trip. Perhaps we could go outside to Chesapaek with watches. Send me a PM and we can discuss posibilities
