Udallah, you are right about there neing a very very tight intercoatal behind longport and all the way down to Cape May, but some of the area are only enough room for one boat to pass, it is extremely shoaled, not maintained or dredged, and not well marked in sections. We used to sail in my hobie cat when I lived in Ocean City, NJ all the way down to Cape May Harbor. Its ok with a boat which draws 6" and the rudders pop up when they hit something. It winds through the salt marshes and on a wind where there is a western or northern component, the water empties out of the bay and gets very very shallow.

If you go this way this get unlimited towing and an extra battery for your hand held VHF. The intercoatal behind LBI and north of Toms River and down to Forked River look like a 6 lane super hiway compared to the stretch from Atlantic City to Cape May
