Re: Lake St. Clair to Florida?
The trip is pretty much controlled by the New York State Canal schedule it closes first week of November and opens early May. You want to be through the Canal not much later than early October (for a bunch of reasons) and can't get back through til' May.
We usually take 3 months down (lots of exploring), 3 months Florida/Bahamas and 3 months back.
