You can go to Lake Ontario via the Trent Canal with mast down if you draft is no more than five feet. Going the Welland Route should take you 10 to 12 days at a relaxed pace. From Oswego, NY where you enter the canal is about 8 to 10 days, again not rushing but moving each day. It is a very pleasant trip.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
