It's a from Canal to Canal....Most people I know just hope for good weather and do it in one leg. I've been up the Cohanssey it's pretty. It's Quiet, the Bait Box Restaurant is right there. Worth a look see.

I've never been up the Maurice.

Neat Old lighthouses, a nuclear power plant are about the only other scenery

In the wrong wind esp.against tide the seas can get steep. I've done this trip at night a few times, it's black. There's not alot to get bearings good navigation would be key.

There's a fair amount of shipping but you can avoid most of it staying outside the channel.

Then there are those days...when it's like a desert! It's Hot Hot Hot, not a sign of a head flies..trying to eat your feet. Day's like that, I've stopped the boat and jumped in the water about once an hour...just to cool off and get away from the flies..

If I get a nice breeze and get to sail this stretch, I consider myself lucky!
Fishing isn't bad!
