Make sure you have a good understanding of tides and a method of predicting them onboard. At least some chart plotters have the tides displayed very nicely.
As a sailor from the Great Lakes who did part of this trip last spring it became obvious that the tides can be a big help or hindrance. A little planning for them goes a long way.

Have Fun
