Delivery help from Rhode Island to Ches. Bay

Assuming the boat survey fails to yield any significant problems, I will be looking for help to bring a 42 foot cutter from Rhode Island to the mouth of the Potomac River in the next two to three weeks. My sailing has been confined to the Bay so I am looking for experience bluewater people/captains/delivery people. It is expected to take three days and two nights. You can either reply to this thread or send an email to Lonrcrow@yahoo.com. Thanx in advance for your suggestions

Longer?

I think your estimate of travel time is a little ambitious. I estimate the trip to be about 500 miles Statute or 446 nm assuming you go directly from RI to Cape May and not through LI Sound and transverse the Delaware Bay/C&D canal and then down the Chesapeake. It's about the same if you go down to the end of MD and then up the bay.

450 nm in 3 days (72 h) is just over 6 kt (average). If you only do 60 h (3 days and 2 nights) then you will need to average 7.5 kts.

Not saying it can't be done, but it may be a tight schedule and no time for typical SNAFu's that one may encounter.

If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.

First, your timetable is a bit tight, and doesn't account for mechanical problems or weather delays, both of which can happen.

Second, you might want to clarify whether this is a paid delivery or you're looking for volunteers. If you're looking for volunteers, are you going to be paying their airfare to the start and from the endpoints?

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.

So you're looking for a professional delivery captain and crew and having the boat moved as a paid delivery?

here I am. 100 ton USCG Masters license. 20 years experience delivering boats. Me plus crew for the move $3,200 plus travel expenses. 1/2 down before the boats moves, balance on the completion of the move.

Let me know!
