Transient mooring in Cape May, NJ?

I''m planning to leave my Tartan 3000 in Cape May for five days, breaking up a trip from the Chesapeake to Manasquan Inlet. (Work can ruin a perfectly good cruise!) Can anyone recommend somewhere to rent a mooring for a not-too-outrageous price? (Launch service will be a necessity.) If not a mooring, an inexpensive slip? A small inlet on the Delaware would work as well as Cape May harbor for me.
Thanks in advance- Gus Taylor

Don''t think there are any
Transient moorings or cheap marinas in Cape May.
I paid 1.75 per foot while the Nor Easter Blew. Anchorage is small and don''t recall many if any moorings. Cohansey River has Marinas that are. I believe. cheaper. Only Launch service there is ducks. Only other possibility I can think of is Cheasepeake City
Remember weather will take any schedule and zap it especially on Delaware Bay.

There are no morings in cape may. You can anchor in front of the coast guard station, but there is no launch service. and there are no "cheap" marinas. Sorry. There are only a few marinas there that you can enter with any type of draft. I suggest that you go straight through north. It will take you two more days or one over night to get up there. One easy day to AC.
