It don't get much better than this . Most of the trip the water was like glass.
That's the Delaware Memorial Bridge in the distance

The C and D canal was pretty clear of debris but was still as muddy as the Mississippi

Dude I can't imagine even going out in that crap. Risking busting a drive, prop or even more. I'm not moving my heap until that crap clears out.

Well , five of us have been trying to do this trip for the last three Wednesdays(my wife works for a Dr and they're off on Weds). So it was sunny , mild , low humidity....just had to keep a sharp look out. I was down to idle speed on a few occasions.
