We had perfect weather and ran outside to Cape May. I am interested in the inside route for those days when it blows easterly making the ocean lumpy while pumping water into the back bays. We do a round trip from Barnegat Light to Florida annually so I like to have options. By the way I have run inside from Barnegat Inlet to Atlantic City many times. This spring one hour after low tide. Its no problem, a little thin in spots . This time at half tide rising and never saw less than six feet. A lot depends on your boat. If I had open wheel twins Id be way more cautious. Thanks for all the replies.
