We do the Delaware every year on our LI trip. You can get 5 hours going south and 7 going north with the current of you plan it correctly. Going south we anchor behind Reedy Island and leave 1.5 hours before slack.
Going north we can usually get through the C&D to at least the Sassfras.
Riding the "Express" is the only way to go on the Delaware.

YEP! Last May on the delivery down from RI we were just inside the DE Bay entrance and made it up the River, through the C/D and down to Rock Creek in about 14 hours. And that counted going slowly through the canal as there was some debris to look out for.

Conversely 2 years ago delivering a Bene36.7 to LI it was miserable; foul current, foul wind and boat issues. NOT a fun trip.
