Garffin One more thing ED. I had a great time on the way down south here but 1 I was not in any hurry. I had days where I could sit and go look around/wait out the weather and just sleep. It was not a hard trip. I mostly sailed during the day and with the tide for the most part. I don't know how many people you are going to see going North this time of year but if you do I am sure your going to love it. If you need a hand getting the boat up there just let me know. Right now my work is slow so I could take off for a some days. just let me know. [/IMG]

Garffin Hey edguy3 if you do stay there make sure you take a trip up through the first bridge its a swinging bridge. right after that you will see some bars and such on the right hand side. Good place to get a beer and wifi.

Garffin yeah I was fine. I did get a little worried becauce I didn't have a lot of room to scope out and when the tide did change my stern was about 40' away from some rail road tracks. There is a train that runs a few time a day. I think it was part of the NJ transit system. But yeah I didn't seem to have any problems there. I stayed there 2 days. Didn't drag at all. Lots of mud

Garffin Sorry I will the other 2 charts in just a sec. First time with a lot of programs I just got this Opencpn last night. and this desktop screen capture so sorry about all this. Where are you talking about edguy3? I had np with my little boat and the current. I really can't tell you what the current was as I really didn't have alot of info. with me at the time. I sort of winged it all the way down. I down loaded maps from noaa and would really look at them while I was anchored then I would just take off. The only place I had any hard time and it really was not that hard but going into Cape May from Atlantic City at night with the tide going the wrong way and two other boats trying for the same spot was a lot of fun. but no big worries.

edguy3 Dan, how's the current in that spot? I tied up on the north side of the river and it was a bit challenging at max flood.
