Many thanks. I do use Active Captain
. I have not yet gotten into the details for a trip north (hopefully) from the Chesapeake to Long Isl Sound in June. Active Captain did steer me towards an anchorage just to the right of the 60' highway bridge and off the channel in Atlantic City that I plan to use. Looks tight (depth) going in, but most boats have said they have had no issues. I only draw 5.25' but my mast
is too tall to go under the bridge there. I've anchored up river of that bridge before on past trips.
I'll look at that basin near Liberty Island on Active Captain. Much closer to the East River if the tide is turning early than the usual Atlantic Highlands stay-over, and looks like one gets the same spectacular view of NYC
as at Liberty Landing Marina a few hundred yards to the north.
