From Baltimore to NYC should be 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 days depending on the boat. Which S2 is it? 30ish feet or 36ish feet?
I just got back from Brick NJ and the inlets along the NJ coast are basically fine except for some interesting shoaling.
I'm leaving at the end of this week on my own boat to run from Annapolis
MD to Melbourne FL and then back for the SSCA Melbourne Gam and Annual Meeting. I can consult this week. I can do a delivery
The big deal on this run is boat speed and tidal current
(current, not tide) in the C&D canal. That means, for the week between Christmas
and New Years hitting the Chesapeake end between 3 and 4 in the afternoon for slack before flood. Leave Baltimore a bit before noon and you can ride a boost straight through the canal and down the Delaware Bay. Baltimore to Cape May should be around a day on an S2 8 or 11 if you can maintain 5 kts or better STW. 6 kts would be better.
Weather permitting just keep going up the coast at the 70' line or East. It really is all about the weather.
I have a portable propane
heater and a wefax 'go-kit'.
My thanks to boatsail and Mambo for pointing me at this thread.
If my schedule or rates don't fit with the S2 owner's needs I'll be happy to help her find someone that can help. I can definitely make a run to Baltimore this week to look at the boat and tell the OP and owner if the boat is ready to go.
Have the owner contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If folks here are interested in the nuts and bolts of a delivery I'm happy to keep this thread updated as long as the owner is okay with it.
