Re: C&D Canal

Well the trip thru the C&D was uneventful. Other than a couple of other boats that we saw we had the Canal all to ourselves. I wish we had crossed it at night so we could have had the nite time effect with all the lights on.
We timed the current coming up the Delaware Bay and the C&D perfectly, sometimes hitting 8.5 kts. Made for a very fast trip under power (Zero wind).
I must recommend Chesapeake City. Chesapeake City Inn and Marina is the closest thing to St. Hogue (Captain Ron) I've ever seen. It was awesome. Just stay out of the heads-NASTY!!
