I'm interested in Cohansey. I checked Hancock's website and it looks like a cute little place, though their opening day probably isn't until Saturday.

I'm curious about the entrance to Cohansey River:

Do the dotted lines indicate a channel (northwest side marked by G5M), or do you need to steer around the island like I show above?

Would you have any interest in shooting through the canal to Chesapeake City on Saturday? Then maybe out to Delaware City on Sunday? I have not checked currents to see what time we'd need to do this, and whether it works with the run down to Ship John Shoal.

Also, do you usually anchor on the Cohansey, or take a slip at Hancock?

I might bring my "living room dink" along.
