Lake Erie to Florida

I am planning to sail my 25' Coronado from Lake Erie to Southern Florida in Spring '14. Anyone know any good books or places to find good information. I plan on taking the Erie Canal Route. Any information would be helpful (time, cost, suggested routes). I would like to make the trip as quickly as possible. Thank you for any advice!

Try doing a search on this site. There's a ton of good info here on this subject.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Re: Lake Erie to Florida

Think of it as three trips joined together. One gets to NYC, the second from there to the Chesapeake, and the third from the southern Chesapeake to Florida (ICW). All have been covered here with some regularity.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Re: Lake Erie to Florida

I'm doing a similar trip right now, west end of Lake Superior to Bahamas. Currently in NYC. Skipper Bob's Guide to the Erie Canal is indispensable. The Erie Canal took us ten days from Buffalo to Troy easy going. Another three or four days from Troy to New York

The Skipper Bob's Guide to Lake Erie is worthless.
