Sailing from Brick, NJ to Muscongus Bay, Maine

Just purchased a Cheoy Lee Offshore 33 and will be sailing her home.

I've heard some horror stories about crossing New York and am looking for solid advice.

This is a boat I'm not familiar with, but, I am going to spend some time going through her before heading out.

She's got some, apparently, minor motor issues that I'll address in a few days. It's a Perkins 4-108 diesel and I've got all the manuals. I'll be sure it's in solid working order before splashing the boat.

Anyone done this passage? Do you prefer crossing at sea or the East River? Anyone gone through the Cape Cod Canal?

Please speak up.

Thanks everyone!

Keep Calm & Carry On
