On the Jersey Side???

Does anyone know of any on the Jersey side besides in Cape May? My draft is 5'6". Looking for a month to month as well and Cape May would get a bit pricey from what I have seen.
Thanks in advance,

Freesail99 There are also many private homes that rent space in or near the Delaware.

Summit North is nice

We moor our 51' Kanter at Summit North Marina (Summit North Marina) It is a nice facility with good amenities. Only problem is that it is a long way (5 miles) from the marina to any stores or outside facilities. The marina gives free rides, but one hates to wear out ones welcome.

CDRA Not many choices on the Delaware side of the Bay; try Delaware City Marina on the original C&D canal just north of the entrance to the C&D. Delaware City is a very pretty little town.

North of Lewis near Slaughter Beach is Cedar Creek Marina, mostly power boats.

For ammenities Lewis is a great destination, a very attractive historic district and bus service to Rehoboth Beach.

North of the C&D there are no marina's on the Delaware side, until Essington PA. Essington is under the approach to Philadelphia International Airport so the noise makes it less than desirable for liveaboards, but Anchorage Marina does have some liveaboards, and has a strong current, most slip have at least 17 ft water depth at low tide. Also The Lagoon resturant and marina and 3 or 4 other marinas in Essington.

In Philadelphia there are 3 marinas near the Ben Franklin Bridge and walking distance to the historic area, all liveaboard tolerant, try the Philadelphia Marine Center which I think Kernix mentioned, or Dave and Busters Marina.

TSteele65 Just checking, there doesn't appear to be a whole lot between Lewes and Philly.

Kernix I heard there's one in Philly under the Ben Franklin bridge but I'm not sure - plus that's pretty far up.

The only thing I've found is to look for a marina list - and then visit them to see what the deal is - or even better - since not all marinas are listed - search on "pumpout station" + delaware river

Delaware Bay Marinas

Any ideas on a month to month livaboard marina on Delaware Bay (Delaware side) Looking for good approach depth and a protected and safe marina. Amenities is a must. I have a 40 ft sailboat with a 5' draft. Any help would be appreciated.
