Hell Gate

What would be the strategy for navigating thru Hell Gate from say Northport to Liberty Landing Marina? Looking at Eldridge seems like 2 hrs after high water at the Battery would work? If I get delayed and hit those 5 kts at the Gate, can I control the boat if my max hull speed is 7 kts?
Also what side of Roosevelt Island is best or does it matter? Mast height is only 48'.
