There's no limit as far as I know. There are locks at Lachine, but your mast stays up. Oceanic tankers can come to the western end of Lake Ontario, but "up" from that the "Lakemax" limit is about 750 feet. That's bigger than Giu's boat, even.

Thanks for the replies.

I don't have the time to sail from the Great Lakes to the East Coast, hence I have to truck the boat.

I'm expecting to take the northern route. Again, the need for speed...

Have them drive it to Cape Breton, then. Might as well see some pretty cruising grounds.

There is no need to truck your boat, simply follow these instructions:

1. Go to goggle.ca
2. click on maps
3. click on get directions
4. enter New York, NY in start field and Paris France in end field
5. click on "get diections" in blue field
6. enjoy, paying special attention to #24
