I'm on L. Superior now but traversed the Erie Canal in 2007 to Oswego, NY and then took the Trent-Severn waterway through Ontario to the North Channel and then L. Superior. A sailboat must have the mast removed to traverse these canals. Find out which marinas specialize in mast stepping/lowering, esp. just south of Albany on the Hudson R. then hang out there and hitch a ride to L. Superior. I bet you'll have no trouble getting a lift from there. Sorry, I can't remember the marina I used but it was maybe 20 miles s. of Albany. rick S/V Jura
