RhythmDoctor, thanks for the link; I've been following that story with interest! Based on what I've read, I don't think I'd be trying Barnegat inlet anyway - I'd either go the ICW or down to the next inlet South, whose name escapes me now.

I forgot about ICW through that part of New Jersey. I don't know those waters at all, but someone here once warned to always check the operational status of all the bascule bridges before departing, since they are sometimes down for maintenance/repairs. That might also be covered in USCG's weekly LNM reports. I'm sure Dave or Jim McGee knows more about this.

Ulladh - Last spring you said your plan was to stay in the water at Anchorage all winter. Are you coming over here? (I'm hauling early Nov.)

LOL...inoperable bridges - that's something I hadn't considered, and could pose a bit of a problem!!! Maybe I'll be building that A-frame a little sooner than I expected!

The next Inlet down ( Little Egg Inlet) is worse choice to go out than Barnegat. It has frequently shifting shoals. You can continue down the intercoastal and go out Absecon Inlet which is an easy one (Atlantic City. The intercoastal to Atkantic City from Barnegat is norrow with mskinny water, but doable. Make sure you have Boat US unlimited towing. You best bet is to go ourt Barneget in the AM when it is calm, 85% of the time. Also Greater Egg Inlet to get behind Ocean City is no picnic either, with freuently shifting shoals and rollers across the inlet in the afternoon.

Barnegat Inlet to Ocean City is approx 50 miles or a 12 hour trip. Atlantic City to Ocean City is 22 miles. You can break this up by anchoring across from Clam Creek in Atlantic City or staying at Kammermans in Clam Creek (2.50 a foot vs 5 dollars in the Farley Marina.

No intercoastal from AC to OC as there is a fixed bridge in Longport.

Make sure you engine is checked out before you do this also. If I rememeber the Cat 25 is a pop top model with an outboard. Expect to average 4 knots, less against the tidal current even.

For more info feel; free to PM me.

I don't know the air draft on the C 25, but Ocean city Roosevelt Blvd fixed bridge is 35ft vertical clearance. There are some other fixed bridges I think at Sea Isle and Avalon.

My Havsfidra has an air draft of 28ft.

Rhythm
I will haul out this winter, I have a split in the rudder, above water line but it will travel. The winter project will be to use the old rudder as a template for new.

Ulladh, the mast height above water (air draft) is about 33' for a C25; the mast is 28'. I'm not sure how high up the antenna sticks above the mast; I'll have to measure that when I take it down.

Waterway Cruising Guide | Waterway Planner

Go to waterway planner and zoom in to the NJ section, chart is overlaid on google map and contains update notes including shoaling and bridge work.

33ft under a 35ft bridge may be a problem with powerboat wake at high tide.

the City of Ocean City has purchased a marina around 2nd and bayfront. While its open and exposed to a long fetch, it will be on the cheaper end of the slip options. Will try to find pricing info for you.
