Re: Norfolk, VA to Boston delivery

Having gone in And out of Barnegat over 75 times I would say it is to be respected. Not as easy as Cape May , Absecon, or Manesquan, but for me is the only other inlet I would try on the NJ coast. Having lived there for 18 years helps , and as John has stated the South Jetty definitely improved it. As long as you understand it, know you will face a green can in the middle of the rocks forcing you to the north jetty, and dogleg perpendicular across the back of the inlet it's really not difficult. Care should be given in outbound tide and wind from the NE or E.

It is the perfect midway point between Cape May and Sandy Hook to do the Jersey coast in two days. Manesquan, while a great Inet precludes anchoring. You need to get a slip there.

Johns anchorage picture is a pretty one. There s even an anchorage a little further on Meyers Hole two toward High Br Yacht Club.
