We're in Buzzards Bay with our Morgan now, southbound after six weeks in Maine. We do the short hops,- Blynman Canal;Cape Cod Canal; East River; Point Pleasant Canal inside at Manasquan & out at Atlantic City; Cape May Canal; C&D Canal. It's debatable which path requires more experience. Our path requires much more attention to currents and tides as well as more inlets and bridges. Offshore is a longer committment, but pleasant in nice weather. We are often anchored ny two in the afternoon and we play with three months for north or south bound. In any case, choose your weather. Our only rough passages are when we decide to travel in marginal weather. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
