The officer I spoke to at customs Providence was quite a decent guy. I have his name so I will ask for him when I arrive there. All I want is a definative answer and a piece of official paper to back it up. That way, I should be able to keep the right side of the law all the way down to my destination
, Norfolk VA.
HI! Williamson, I like plan A too.... Me and my crew just took the trip on the outside of Delaware and "not" the bay side. We found the trip was really good and allot quicker on the out-side or Ocean Coastal side. However; from Ocean City down to the bridge to Norfolk, VA its really sparse for any pull in's The inlet's are very shallow even at high tides. Were the our charts
claimed low is 12' feet it was actually only 4 - 5' feet at low tide. Found the sand has shifted allot. But, it was a sandy bottom.
The two stops I had the crew stop over was Lewis, Delaware and then Ocean City, Virginia.
Lewis was great and right down town no car needed for supplies. Restaurants all over the place.. It, really was a fun place to meet my family
there. Plus; my mother keeps her sailboat there too...LOL It's a Pearson
303. At her age in the 80's that's a big boat for her now...LOL
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
