Seeking NJ/DE/MD ICW Anchorage or reasonable cost mooring for September/October

Hi All,

I'm sailing (well mostly motoring) a new to me 1962 Soverel 28 yawl down the Hudson from Burlington, VT next week. My original intent was to bring her round to Maine, but it's a long haul and I'd like to eventually take her to Florida, so wondering if there is a safe and secure place to anchor or moor her somewhere south of Cape May (via the C&D) for September and October and then continue south with her. She's a solid and relatively simple boat with about 3' draft (I don't plan to have a dink with me). I could do a 2 point anchor setup, but would prefer a reasonable priced mooring. Would be helpful if I could be somewhere somewhat accessible to public transit so I can get back to VT for my vehicle and then home to Maine.. I have two moorings in Rockland, Maine and would be very happy to do a swap for this or next year...biggest mooring can take about 32-34' and 16,000lbs.

Appreciate any and all thoughts and assistance. Cheers, Will

You might consider Chalk Point Marine in Galesville MD. Tell Donna I sent you. No public transit but I can get you to Amtrak or BWI.

Way up the Sassafrass river are some marinas with moorings. Not too far from BWI that a ride could be organized somehow. Very well protected.

Not on your route but a bit north on the Delaware River, anchorage between Little Tinicum island and Essington PA. Keep your dinghy at any of the marinas in Essington and a short bus ride (10 mins) to Philadelphia International Airport and train to Philadelphia for Amtrak.

Mud holding with strong reversing tidal current.

Just re-read your post no dink. No launch taxi service at Essington but the marinas will negotiate a deal for a slip.

Tidewater Marina in Havre de Grace, MD has some open mooring balls, very secure, close to Amtrac. Marina

All the best,

Gary

Don't know where you are (that might be helpful if you haven't already found a place).

I'm surprised nobody mentioned Skipper Bob's. There are tons of places south of Norfolk to keep your boat in the water or at a dock...

I did that exact trip 6 years ago. !!! awesome!!! another vermonter going south. I also did it in a 28 footer (Triton). Strongly suggest once south of the cape to go offshore as much as possible. You'll save a month.

Happy sails...

$110/month will get you a slip in an ice free harbor in Deale, MD.
