Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Thanks Mad. I haven't considered Cape May. We've been focusing on 'protected waters', and I had been told, both here and on other forums, that the Delaware Bay isn't really the best place as a "home port"/normal cruising ground, so I wrote it off. Plus, with a 28-32' boat and a 4-5' draft, most of the back bays seemed too shallow. Am I wrong? I'd love to be wrong (at least in this case)!

We also have a 15' Albacore, and THAT boat would be perfect for the bays behind Avalon and Wildwood. We're trying to figure out where we could keep the trailer if we take that boat to the shore.
