Tales of daring do are so much grander when we exagerate!

Scaring people on forums is grand sport.

As I stated before, I believe most transits of the Delaware are done under power in light winds and are merely dull. That said, any sort of distance cruising on a schedule exposes you to more potential for sailing in challenging conditions than an over night trip on the Chesapeake. That's just the way it is. You need to either stay near home or keep a flexible schedule.

The comment on not running the engine is wise. Also, NEVER use the grill near fly or mosquito infested shorelines; it's just like ringing the dinner bell.
