Your variables will be wind direction, boat size, motoring or sailing. Depart the mouth of Maurice at least 1 hour before low slack, this should get you past the Salem power plant at the beginning of high slack. The peak tidal current is swift off Salem and between Pea Patch and DE, aim to transit those areas at slack or the beginning of a favorable tidal current.
