Re: Hell Gate

Chartplotter 11 knots SOG next to Roosevelt Island

Entrance to Hell gate (where Harlem and East River Combine) not so scarey looking. Lots of current, but very doable if you are taking it.

Looking back down the East River toward Battery before entering Hell Gate- look at water

Middle of Hell Gate looking back at the city

In Hell gate...no biggie
