Dave,

I'm sure you've looked at it, as you've done this trip many times; But the favorable currents up the East River are pretty early a.m. on the 19th. you might want to stage yourself in Jersey City. Current turns against you in the gate around 11:47 a.m.

Really you'll be fine either way..leaving the highlands at 1st light..puts you through nicely.

I only say this because I was thinking of going up this weekend myself and was looking at the currents. Though, I may wait another week now. Maybe we'll cross paths somewhere.

Have a Great Trip!
