eau-de-vie is on a distinguished road
It is all about the currents. You need to time it so you have the currents with you in the C&D as well as the Delaware River and Delaware Bay. I would try to make Engineers Cove on the C&D canal on Night one and anchor. A marina in the Canal would be Summit North. From there you would try to make Cape May, but the current in the Delaware needs to be with you. Be careful if you want to take a slip at South Jersey Marina becuase they have a current near the dock as well. I tend to anchor behind the Coast Guard Station - Shallow but doable. Heading up you have some questionable inlets - Look for Atlantic City or Point Pleasant. As the best. If you get Stuck for a place to anchor beyond that you would could drop the hook behind Sandy Hook (no pun intended). If you are looking for a marina - check out Liberty Landing on the Jersey side. When I went via the EAST River not the Hudson. Keep in mind that the Hudson is tidal and has currents too... Dave
