Re: Marina on the Jersey side of the Delaware

Why not simply keep the boat on the Chesapeake such as Sassafras River, Bohemia River, Worton Creek, Tolchester etc. .... and then you dont have to spend time transiting the C&D, especially with its adverse currents.

Its ~22 nMi from the Delaware River entrance of the C&D (12 mile long) canal to only the 'beginnings' of good sailing in the Chesapeake (translation: 4.5 hours @ 5 knots and with NO current) ... or an additional 1 to 1-1/2hrs driving time by auto.
