Re: Delaware River May 2013

May 3- Total distance to Cohanassey is approx 44 miles
Eddystone to South Rock Jetty of C&D is 24.4 miles then 19.7 to Cohanessy Light= 44.3
Currrent runs with you starting at 8:45 AM
Arnold Point Shoal
Current starts turning against you at 1:15 PM with aprrox 15 miles to go.
10 hours at least.

May 4 - Cohannesey is midway between the two.
Current against you Ben Davis Shoal from 7AM till 1:15 PM
Current against you Arnold Point Shoal 8 AM to 1:45 PM
Current max 2.25 knots

You dont get any help from the current till after 1:45 from Arnold Point.
Distance from Cohanessey Light to South Jetty of C&D Canal is 19.7 miles

Averaging 3.5 knots 5-6 hours

These are long motoring days. Will be a good trip. Long day down...easier coming back as you have longer times with the current with you.

Have fun
