You are probably posting in the wrong area, but maybe not. What do you need to know? You can put in at Massey's ditch state ramp, Indian River ramp, or many small ramps. Rehobeth bay is conected to Indian River bay by Massey's ditch, and connected to the town of Lewis by a canal which will also get you out the Rosevelt inlet into Delaware Bay. Rehobeth bay is very shallow, use the channels at low tide for sure.Rusty Rudder, in Dewey Beach is on the Bay but it's shallow getting there, but food and views are great. Most boaters in Rehobeth bay are outboard motor users , to allow running tipped up more and you will take off the paint of the skeg. My In-laws have a house in a boating community, on White's creek, and going out the creek at anything other then high tide requires running through a small sand bar, just part of the game. I've only been down three times this year, but if you see me give me a call "Bulldog" on the VHF!.......................Jack

We have a 2005 Montauk 170. Is the bay too shallow for that boat as well?

Your Montauk will be an excellent boat there, I run a 20' twin engine Revenge. Get a chart of the bay and at low tide just be careful. Most anything you will hit in the bay is sand. Going out Indian River Inlet to the ocean can be tough but try to go at a slack tide and it is fine..................Jack
