Yeah, Denise! I'm actually on the Delaware, too. The bridge in question is the DelAir railroad bridge, just south of the Betsy Ross.

As for the flow: The tide slacked off a *lot* in the couple hours that we took to go down river, but my problem is, the wind did too. Once the sun went down, there was NO wind, and I was screwed. I really didn't have time to wait for the tide to head back up.
