Re: Currents in the C&D Canal

There may only be a few optimal or even best times to transit the C&D either way or with respect to ebb or flood in the Delaware, point of beginning and final destination.

Even if one selects the absolute wrong time, the maximum current in opposition will be for less than 1/4 of the transit.

On the evening of June 7th the maximum current in opposition will be about 1.5 knots, an extra pint of fuel and about 2hrs extra for my transit.
