Re: Why not the GWB?

Half mile wide and two knots of current coupled with the fact that wind often runs up or down rivers. Meaning that you would have some pretty challenging tacking to get in one direction or the other. Depending on wind direction and current, could be impossible to go one way or the other.

Certainly challenging, but far from ideal. The boats you see might just be going to or from some place.
