Chef...just a note that you made a few posts today on threads that were pretty dead. No problem s long as you KNOW you are resurrecting them and feel something needs to be added. If not...check the dates of the last reply before responding.
The original poster last August was referring to Ocean City Md. ...not Jersey.

Cam's right, this is an old thread and I missed it too. But since you mentioned it, Seaview has substantial bulkheads all around and looks well protected to me. Were they there when you lived in Ocean City? It also has good floating docks so the tide is not a concern to me. Agree 100% on the inlet, not the best but you can manage it just fine with a little diligence.

Annapolis to Ocean City

Better yet, plan on visiting Lewes, DE, the first town of the first state, with a sailing and nautical enviroment including the Lewes Yacht Club with big boat sailors. We have a new PHRF Fleet and race on Wednesday Nights and occasional Saturdays with June, July and August Series.

We're also racing from Cape Henlopen to Cape May in the Cape to Cape Challenge on August 7, then the Avalon Cup is the following weekend from Avalon down to Cape May.

We've taken our 36' Catalina back and forth to Annapolis, Cambridge and Rock Hall several times. The trip is a full day from Annapolis to Chesapeake City where there is a great bar and resturant and upscale 'Bayards' to eat. Plan the tides, leave Annapolis at Slack Low to catch the Flood, it should carry you all the way to the C & D.

When you leave Chesapeake City, check Reedy Point tide and plan to hit the Delaware River at Slack Flood to catch the Ebb down river. The trip from Chesapeake City to the Delaware River is a long run (about 90 mintues) in the C&D against some current but once you hit the Delaware River, it will run up to 2 knots in your favor. We made the run in 8 hours from the C&D inlet on the Delaware River side to the Roosevelt Inlet in Lewes. We had favorable winds on our quarter at 20K. The traffic in the River can be busy, just hug the outer edges and you won't have any trouble, there are some shoals on the East side of Big Stone Canyon where the tankers lie, so what the chart. The Lewes City Dock charges $2/foot overnight and it is located right in town.

Have fun and let me know if you need more info.
