Re: Sailing from New York City to Montreal ... how long?
My 20ft boat went from Cape May to Montreal via Hudson, Champlain and the Richelieu with a previous owner in the 1980's. From the charts and receipts that came with the boat it took about 5 weeks, but I don't think he was in a hurry.
The deck mast step was damaged stepping the mast for the Richelieu and stayed damaged until I replaced it more than 20 years later.
The Richelieu can get rather shallow, check the latest charts and Parks Canada Parks Canada - Chambly Canal National Historic Site - Chambly Canal National Historic Site
