Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound

2- doing 13.4 on the chartplotter with the current squeezing us like ketchup out a bottle through the "Gate" down the East River and following the outgoing tide under the Verazzano and out New York Harbor. That day we went from Port Jefferson to Barnegat Inlet in 12 hours or so a distyance of 84 miles ( averaged 7 knots) Doing 13.4 through the gate felt like driving on "black ice" didnt even want to trun the helm.
