I am very grateful for the excellent advice received so far! We have made our way from Norfolk to Sandy Hook on our way to Boston and are about to push for the long island sound
from sandy hook. I am challenged by timing the currents, can anyone provide detailed tips? We are on a 35' w/ a 27hp yanmar
and easily move 5.5 knots without current
cruising but can push it to 6.5 knots without stressing the engine
. When would y'all recommend we leave Sandy Hook to time the currents at Hell's gate? I have read to hit battery
park by 1 hr after low tide at battery
but it looks like we will hit considerable current
north frustrating calculating an accurate departure time.
As always, any guidance is greatly appreciated!
