This is all great advice!!
Thank you all and I will surely take every bit into consideration.
The good part is that we are flexible on date; so if the weather isn't right, we call off the trip to another day.
As of right now, we're planning on sailing out of Northport at 4am-ish. As long as we can make it to the Throgsneck in time to catch that Southwest current, we'll do it in one stretch. If we don't make it, we'll stay over somewhere to refuel and recharge, and head out to catch the current on Monday morning. (thinking Manhassett Bay)
I've heard that after the Narrows, it can be very choppy, and that there are 2 channels to pick - one along the shore (which can be very choppy), and one further out. I'd prefer to hug the shore if the sea is calm.
Keep the good info coming, it's very welcome and appreciated.
