Dick Pluta is on a distinguished road
I'm not familiar with the inside stretch from Beach Haven to Barnegat but I understand that it is shallow. The shoals off Barnegat go out a long way so, if you choose to go in there, leave plenty of sea room on the approach. When I have had to go in there I would try to follow one of the charter boats. They know the way.

Wow..that sucks. We have taken a trip involving that route for the last 5 years.Last year we went to NYC. This year we are heading to Mystic. The trip to Cape May has never taken us over 2 days despite the tides. We are right across the bay from you in Rock Creek. 1 day to Reeedy Island just through the Canal on the Deleware River. Thats 52 miles and a long motor day. From there its 44 miles to cape May. You will have the tide against you some of the way or even all of the way , but you can still make it in one day.

From there we stay at Utsches Marina. seventh day is free there. Quick 30 mile hop to Atlantic City and then a 30 mile hop to Barnegat. We have made the trip from cape May to Barnegat in one day when we feel like pushing and leave very early in the AM.

I am curious why this took more than 2 weekends?
