    For the Delaware Bay/River run from Cape May to the C&D canal, this is really your only real alternative. This is a working boatyard with floating docks parallel to the stream of the river. (Be advised that early migrators should check to see if the docks are in if planning on landing here before May 1. Due to the strong current and ice all the pilings holding the floating docks are reset each year. I arrived on April 20th, and only a few pilings had been set.) There is deep water all the way to the docks. The owner took me in from a stormy Delaware even though he was not yet open. Provided me with laundry (no charge) electricity and water. I was out of food so the owner arranged a ride for me to the nearest grocery (nothing except the Baitbox restaurant is within walking distance). The owner went out of his way to take care of me. The current is strong here so plan on going into the docks against the current, there is plenty of turning room. The spot is peaceful and low key. Looking forward to a return trip. Wifi could have been stronger - only minus (Weak wifi true of most spots)
