TheStorm is on a distinguished road
To Lake Champlain, coming from the East Coast it's up the Hudson to the Champlain Canal, where you do need to unstep. The Canal takes about 1.5 days, about 5-days in total from NY.

A benefit of buying on Lake Ontario is that they're mostly fresh water boats, of course. Prices are much cheaper on the US side than in Canada. A friend of mine bought a Catalina-30 in Rochester late in the season last year, in fact, for exactly that, $18K.
