"Put a post with Wildwood or CapeMay in the heading so you can pick up some local members from that area..... They'll have a lot of good detailed info for you...."

I tried that, no local wildwood or cape may people responded, only people that live somewhat near there or used to live there. I've been to Wildwood a bunch of times, just never with a boat. Ocean City is the sh*t, thats where I went on vacation the last 4 years. Wild Party area, had some of the best days of my life there. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for the help ECB.

The way I see it, even if you bring it and don't use it, you only lost a few mpg. Since you'll have it, you'll find a way to make it work. Bring it...

It will probably be a pain in the A$$ to bring it, but if you found a Marina and get the boat down without incident I'm sure you will have a blast. They dont rent boats like yours and you should be able to go wherever you want. Just get a good map and have the GPS with you. (Map is a must)One of the inlets in that area is real shallow and you can't rely on the locals to help you.
South is Cape May North is AC. You can follow the ICW either way. Then you have the option of running the Ocean as well.

What Marina did you decide to go with?

Well before JC Perfs reach around...correction Masher, it wasn't a hummer LMAO...The boat wasn't running and I wasn't sure if I would make it in time (that and I had to replace an axle on the trailer) So finding a marina is one thing working against me. I was going to try Pier 47 like you said, but at this point I don't have a place to put it. I'm gonna call around tomorrow and hope for the best. I just hope someone still has a slip.
