I take it you're going up the Hudson to the Erie Canal? There have been several threads about doing that particular trip, including recommendations for where to unstep and step the mast on each end. I'd recommend you do a search for those thread using the search technique listed in the post in my signature, which uses google, rather than the sailnet search engine.
As for the trip from Mattapoisett... it really depends a lot on the wind and weather. If the wind is out of the southwest, it can be a lumpy, cold trip to NYC. You will need to time your approach to LIS to take advantage of the tidal currents.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
