Re: ICW Cape May

I agree - there really is no practical ICW in NJ. I have sailed from Manasquan Inlet down to Great Egg Inlet (or was it Little Egg inlet next to the closed Beach Haven Inlet) and won't do it again. I was in a Cat. 30 with a 4' draft and it was nerve wracking between Barnagate and where we got out. Lots of eel grass and floating grass islands clogging up engine intake, etc. Choose your weather window and go outside in the ocean. You will be happier!
