Re: Great Egg Harbor Shoaling

Are you planning a trip up that way? If so, let us know. My boat is now in Forked River, but we're in Ocean City pretty regularly with our kids because of the boardwalk.

Re: Great Egg Harbor Shoaling

Denise, I'll trade you a ride for a ride. I enjoyed sailing the lower Delaware more than I expected to (except for dodging fish/crab pots), so I'm now curious as to what your area is like.

However, my question was really for Sabre, since this was his thread.

We do it every year. It's not that difficult as long as you monitor conditions and don't do it with a e or ne wind over 15 knots.

Re: Great Egg Harbor Shoaling

going to a "beach party" tomorrow. it's near the mouth of Rancocus creek on the river.
It's not terrible the river Jim. channel is maintained 45 -50 deep all the way to Trenton. the winds are terrible to nada in june july and most of august. Finally getting some cooling this weekend. I find myself motor tacking with jib more this year. Sigh.

Re: Great Egg Harbor Shoaling

Having lived in OC ,NJ for 18 years on Seaspry Road with. Birdseed view every day of he inlet, I can say or sure it's not sailboat friendly unless you boat is a hobie cat. We often took our hobie across the inlet and the rudders pipped in the middle of the channel many times

Cape May, Atlantic City, Manesquan are fine and easy. Barnegat can be trecherous ad you shoud have local knowledge and good conditions. Prettiest anchorage on the coast is Eyers Hole behind the Barnegat lighthouse. All others shoud be avoided.

Re: Great Egg Harbor Shoaling

I ran the inlet yesterday.
Depths were as follows:
GE bell 28'
Green #1 18'
" #3 20'
" #5 30'
" #7 40'
" #9 29'
Longport/OC bridge center span 21'

Controlling depth was 14' between 1 and 3 bouys.
This was done at dead low, less than 5 knots of wind
