Default Jones Inlet to Atlantic City, NJ

Looking to run from Jones Inlet to Atlantic City on a 43 footer. Any routes recommended or just inlet to inlet?

Just run the straight line. Stay away from the shoals outside the southern boundary of Barnegat Inlet.

Stay away for the shoals off Little Egg Inlet. I always head for the sea buoy.

Inlet to inlet, just be prepared for some fog, for some reason I always seemed to run into some off NJ. Have a safe trip.

Inlet to Inlet. Last week did Manasquan to Jones in a 32 smooth cruise in 2's, with occasional 3's.

Run inlet to inlet. Easy peasy. I've done Shinnecock to Little Egg which is one inlet to the north of AC (Absecon).

Should be 95 miles or so.

Thanks for all the info guys...if I am going to the Frank Farley Marina which is by the Borgata, isn’t it best to run the Absecon Inlet??

Yes. The marina is right inside the inlet.

Be ready for no help on the dock. Self sufficient, and unfortunately overpriced.

stay outside.
The ICWW from Barnegat to Little Egg has submerged buoys. I saw the results of a nice boat that hit one. Nasty.
Also tight channels and skinny water between Little Egg & Absecon.

In all my years going there, I think only once was a dockhand NOT on hand when I pulled it. That was only because I pull in at the same time as a large group.
If you don't like the price, don't go there.

As stated above. I go there often on overnighters. Always a crew on the dock to help you.
It's actually very cheap for transient dock where you can use the hotel facilities such as the pool, health club...etc.
The only difference is that you are sleeping on the boat and not in the hotel. book through dockwa. I think you get 20% oof the regular rate.

And its at the Nugget, not Borgata

I did inside from Atlantic City to Brielle a year ago at high tide in my 46'. I draft 3.5 feet. It was the hardest part of my 3000 mile trip from TX. I saw 2 feet of water under my boat in a few spots. Very sad no one wants to dredge the ICW in NJ. Also a bridge was inoperable (even though we called ahead to check) and we were a few inches from hitting it and were prepared to lose antennas as we had no choice but to go due to the depth issues we couldnt turn around.

When I was in Waretown over Memorial Day weekend, they showed me a 40-50` that was on stands. It hit one, chatter marks down the side. mangled the starboard prop, rudder bent back into the transom taking out a chunk. Blown transmission, was taking on water, towed in,
I made the southbound trip from there to little egg the end of April and kept one eye on the plotter and another on the water,
Here's some recent info https://www.thesandpaper.net/p/broke...-agree/1817507
