I found this site for Bristol boat owners. Looks like Dan has a pretty sea worthy boat! when I read "24ft" I became real concerned Since boats that size I've seen are little more then day sailors. Bristol Corsair or Bristol 24

good luck!

I found this little brass plate onboard lastnight.

I found this little plate about 2 inches by 1 inch that says the boat was hull #157 Corsair. Itís old but no soft spots on the top half the boat. I literally jumped up and down from the stern to the bow last night trying to find something soft but nothing. I will not know how well the boat is until I get it out of the water which I hope to do if when I get it down south. I do have two stanchions that do need to be repaired. Looks like someone just grabbed a hold of the top of it and pulled. The running rig looks ok. I will see on tomorrow I guess.  Wish me luck. Dan

Just a suggestion... don't go by the National Weather Service for weather. In our experiences over the last year, they are often dangerously incorrect. My recommendation would be to check out PassageWeather - Sailing Weather - Marine Weather Forecasts for Sailors and Adventurers and SailFlow.com - MD - chesapeake Wind Data. Don't go today - seas are supposed to be confused and from the SSW. Sunday, you'll be looking at winds 15-20 with the seas gradually increasing from 4-6' to 4-7' to 6' on Monday and Tuesday, but by Tuesday night you'll be looking at wind around 30 and seas of 9'+, so be careful if you go outside.

So, Dan... I was looking the NJ intercoastal.. geeze that's complicated! I can see why a run down the coast is the better choice (if the weather is right)
Keep us updated!

I've read a lot of comments over the years about the NJICW; that it is very pretty and remote in many places. If you have the height clearance to make it through, I'd lean in that direction. Play the tides and take it easy.

For a new-to-you boat, that would be the more prudent choice. You can probably make better time vs waiting many days for a good offshore run at this time of year.

Xort I didn't study the chart much but it looks like there are allot of bridges on the NJICW, I'm guessing, they are lift or swing type bridges?

How much do you draw? The NJICW gets a bit shallow in places.

Yes there are a lot of bridges in the NJICW. There is a need to be prudent regarding depth too. I've read plenty of accounts on the Great Loop list of people with 4+' draft doing this route. They do watch the tides and make it OK.

Normally I would accept the offshore idea; but this poster has a smaller boat that can make it inside. Considering the time of year, the newness of the boat to the owner, the problem with a clogging fuel filter and it would seem to me to be a better idea to go inside. Not a perfect route to be sure but...

Draft: 3' 5"

I'd guess his boat is more at home on the ocean it's no daysailer at those weights.
