From Delaware River Pilots association:

After discussions with the president of the Pilots’ Association and the chairman of the Mariners’ Advisory Committee, we have decided on the following temporary guidelines for outbound deep draft vessels (37’-40’). These windows are intended to maximize the use of the available water when transiting the New Castle and Deepwater ranges. Following the completion of maintenance dredging, these temporary guidelines will be re-evaluated and changes will be made as necessary. <span-size:12.0pt;font-family:"Times New Roman",serif">
