Distance from Reedville to Solomons

Anyone knows off hand (or has a decent chart) to see what the sailing distance is from Reedville to Solomons? How many hours of motoring you think this might be?

Less than a full day of motoring. I've twice gone from Deltaville to Solomons in less than a full day.

Let's see. From my previous home on Tabbs Creek, VA, it was 49 nm north to Solomons Island. To Reedville was about 15 nm north. Allowing for the distance from Reedville to the Bay, I'd say 36 nm or so. Six hours at six knots.

p.s. watch out for those pound nets north of the Great Wicomico!

It's about a 40nm trip, 6.5 hours at 6.5 knots.

Well, the captain should get to Solomons at noon, so I guess he better leave real early. I have a feeling they will be late but they guy is very sure of himself. If he's late - he is buying a new plane ticket on his own.
