Different folks different experiences. Never found going through woods or quicks difficult. Only issue is for woods there’s two channels. But a preview of a chart makes the way through either pretty obvious. Of course you need to pick your moments. Don’t like fighting current. Especially when it’s swirly as it is in there. Time it for slack or near slack. Same for C&D . A long trip against current. I find getting into cape may from the Delaware can be interesting. Try to pay attention to the ferry schedules. Last few times just went around and did Jersey on the outside. Much lower stress. But agree 29’ a bit small and those options not available.
