Fastest Route From North Channel To Hudson

I'm in the North Channel and am looking for insight regarding the fastest route from here to the Hudson River. We are in a 36 foot sailboat that draws 4.5 feet. Our top motor speed is 6 kts.

We were considering the trent severn and then across ontario to oswego. However, some folks we have talked to say that crossing lake ontario with the stick on the deck can be hazardous and unpleasant, so we are now leaning towards Lake Huron to Lake Erie and taking down the mast for the erie canal. Any insight on routes, as well as suggested locations for taking down the mast are much appreciated.
Thanks!
