In the spring of 1998 I had my boat shipped to Havastraw, New York and motored up the river to Troy, New York. Then back down the river to New York City and through Hell Gate to Long Island Sound. East in the sound to Newport and back the opposite shore. Down the east coast to the Intercoastal Waterway to Deleware Bay. Up the Deleware to the Chessapeak and down it to Norfolk in October. Down the Intercoastal and Dismal Swamp to Charleston. Out at Charleston to Jacksonville.
