Did the inside Jersey "ICW" from Manasquan to Cape May last year. Went on the outside along the coast this year, Had a horrible time with shallow water, very bad fog, fisherman anchored in the channel at a time when I could not see the front of the boat, some rips and such a long, long way to go. This year we picked our window, considering tides, winds (best when from the west) and weather. Had a great ride from Manhasset Bay to Manasquan. Then to Atlantic City and finally Cape May. Will never take the inside again, even if I have to wait two weeks for a window.
