I fished out of there for a while... Sea Isle ramp is short and the current is a little rough, but if you are a couple hours off low you will be fine. The ramp in strathmere is crap in my opinion. Whale creek stone ramp is actually quite nice, but no docks anywhere near it. We got stuck their only 1 time with our 17' boat but we come to find out our tires were not fully inflated so it was our own fault. We used it plenty, but be careful when you go out from Whale Creek to the main channel, it can be shallow, we always hugged the bank up until the old "Z" House by the stratmhere ramp.Then of course their is the ramp at CISP. Havent used it in ten years. Just not on the way for me.

Whale Creek is tough if you don't know it and draw more than 18". There is a free ramp on Flat creek right before the bridge out of Strathmere. Take your last left before the bridge. Watch your tide because it can rip there! Leave a few for me...I will be out there on Monday. Pig
We had a Condo for 13 years across the canal from the Sea Isle Ramp. I used it many times with a 21 foot Dixie. You should not have any problem there as long as you do NOT go "off" the end of the ramp --- it's a 2 ft drop. (Saw a lot of interesting and "funny" launches.)
Did not fish Ludlam a lot -- generally went south towards Coast Guard Station. Suggest you try both ends of Flat Creek. Good luck.
