We do the Delaware every year on our LI trip. You can get 5 hours going south and 7 going north with the current of you plan it correctly. Going south we anchor behind Reedy Island and leave 1.5 hours before slack.
Going north we can usually get through the C&D to at least the Sassfras.
Riding the "Express" is the only way to go on the Delaware.
