Re: Transiting to the Chesapeake

Good write up Tom,

Manesquan is an easy inlet due to the lack of shoals unlike most of the NJ inlets. We have taken our sailboat in there a number of times. You are right about the first RR bridge being a doozy with current. We got fuel once at Hoomans right before it and soon as we cast off it almost slammed us into hat bridge .

You would love the ride up the East Rive we take too Long Soind every year. It's quite n eye opener in a slow sailboat. We also have stayed a few nights at Liberty Landing. Lass marina with a killer view. Nice restaurant too. The high speed ferry from there to Mahattan leaves you off a short walk to where the Twin towers used to be.

Dave
