murph535 is on a distinguished road
Spoke to Utchs which I think would be perfect but nothing left for this season. Two Mile landing seems to be next best alternative so I'll go and check that out thanks. Where is Longport?

Murph,
Longport is just above Ocean City on the other side of Great Egg Harbor inlet. The marina I'll be at is Seaview Harbor Marina. No cheap though. The problem I think you'll have is there are not a lot of slips in the area to start with and a bit late to be looking for one. If I remember right there were a couple of marinas off Rio Grand Ave in Wildwood but don't know if they would be suitable. Not too bad a ride from there out to Cape May inlet. let me know how you make out.

Utchs looks perfect but it's full for 08. Two mile landing looks like next best option so I'll check that out. thanks

Murph,

Cam described the "square wave" to a T. In the Delaware Bay in the afternoon you have a predominatly SE onshore breeze which builds allafternoon in the summer from 5- 30 knots, depending on the difference beweeen the land temp and water temps. The greater the difference the greater the wind. Hot air rises so the air over the land (the hotter of the two) rises more quickly and the cooler air over the ocean rushes in under it to give the onshore breeze.

The tidal Delaware River flows up to 3.5 knots at peak tide and when it flows toward the ocean and opposes this striong wind and the bottom is shalllow ( less than 50 ft in most places) the wave form abruptly and have "almost square steep faces there. This area is known for them. We will be in Utsches this summer for a trip up to Mystic and during the month odf August.

Let me know where you end up.

Dave

Interesting comments about the Canyon Club... we stayed there on our trip north from Annapolis last year and had a great time. They seem to put all of the sailboats on the last dock toward the end, but the shorehands were very helpful and the guys in the office were great. We met a couple of other people bringing their boats up the coast and ended up finding how bad being hungover and pounding through heavy seas the next day work together.

Chris,
I think Canyon Club is fine for transients, there were a few there the day we stopped in. But given the shortage of berths in that area I guess they can be selective in who they give slips to. They told me they didn't have a single slip, much less one that was available, that could handle my 5'10" draft. I found that hard to believe.

Harbor Cove is also a full service facility which helps. It's a bit of a way back though. Since Seaview in Longport doesn't have haul out facilities I'm looking at Harbor Cove for winter storage next year.
