    We don't mind staying overnight. It's really quiet and not much rocking from the channel. Great sunsets! Definitely not where you want to be in weather. Good mud and sandy bottom that holds really well.

    Thank you so much for this awesome intel - looks like a sweet spot to spend a couple of days after having been on the run for 3 days!!

    The timing on Sunday will likely be an issue. The plan as it is now is to leave the NJ coast Sunday AM.

    Thanks a lot for helping out. This is very informative post. I'm taking notes and will study the charts. I'm sure I'll have questions, which I'll post later.

    Keep in mind that a raft-up on the "outside" of Still Pond, near the mouth of Churn Creek, is almost as good as going inside and the navigation is as easy as it gets; go in, anchor (bow and stern). It can get a little frat-house-like (not that that's a bad thing but it is what it is) on weekends, but if you're showing up on a Sunday, you should be able to get spots on the sandbar--- there is one there too--- as people leave, and it should be pretty well cleared out by Sunday evening. Earlier caveats re: weather apply. Not a show stopper, just maintain situational awareness.
