Lake Erie to Lake Ontario

Hi All,

Has anyone here had any experience using the Welland Canal between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario?

Specifically, controlling depths / heights; Transit time; Costs; etc.

I'm considering keeping a boat in the Buffalo vicinity during the summer and bringing it to the islands for the winter, via the St. Lawrence versus the Hudson.

For family reasons, I would rather keep it on Lake Erie, I think; but maybe sailing would be better in western Ontario than Eastern Erie?

Lots of factors to consider, but I have a couple of years to work them out.

Thanks, Fred
