I have done the NJICW as far as Atlantic City several times and have indeed felt a little "drag" on the keel in a few places in the "grasslands". Not afraid of a little grounding with a full iron keel. Just thought the inside to Cape May might be a new challenge but it's the bridges that scare me a little since I would have to do them at less than high tide (I need 35' 6''). Thanks to all for your replies..
