Terry -

Go to http://www.freeboatingcharts.com. Toward the bottom of the page you can download "Chart Navigator Planning Software – Free Download". After you install that, go back to the same site and under "Get Free Charts" on the right hand side, click on advanced search. Use various search terms under "Find charts by name" like "Delaware" or "Chesapeake". You can then get the charts for yourself and figure out the distances. Have fun!

Terry,
When my wife and I did a 'self delivery' of my NC 331 from Annapolis to RI that area was the first 3 legs of our 'daytime only' motorsail. Annapolis to the marina 2/3 of the way into the C&D, then to a marina at Cape May, then to Barnagat Bay for the end of leg 3 of 7.

Isn't pacemaker a power boat? Not really a question for a sailing site eh?
Try the BoatUS.com forum for better answers!

Cam-

The advice is pretty much the same whether it is an elegant sail-powered craft or a stinkpot.... Sailors often have better advice, being more at the mercy of the elements than their highly overpowered stinkpot brethren.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

In the C&D be aware of strong current (3-4 knots) and the ship traffic. Not a place you want to lose the motor.

If time allows Chesapeake City can be a nice stop.

Dawg...Disagree completely. Advice from Barnegat up the Delaware for a sailboat is WAY different than for a powerboat that can do the trip in 2-3 hours from Cape May (especially since most sailboats can't even DO Barnegat inlet and will need to stop at both Atlantic City and Cape May). Same regarding currents in the C&D...who cares if they're 4 knots when you can do 30! Drawing 2ft. and having no mast makes the trip a bit different as well.
Not that sailors can't comment on nice places along the way...but ADVICE for the trip is best done by other power boaters.

true that.... but i was more commenting about places to visit, routes-obviously taking into consideration the greater speed capabilities of the stinkpot...should all be applicable.
