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

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

wysiwyg 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...

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.

labatt Thanks for the info.. I'm going to start another thread on this rather than hijacking this one!

If you mean overhead clearance for your mast............No restrictions at all. presuming you are using the St Laurence Seaway........

Lots of ports along the lower St Laurence, which gets wide and very tidal near it's mouth.......

But Hey if Champlain, over 400 years ago and 1000's of others since have done it, so should you be able

My understanding of the Northern route is that you would want to leave NFLD June lastest...........

With a 175% over "normal" chance of hurricanes this year i'd stay north............

sailingdog sailaway-

Good point... sail out the Erie canal and down the Hudson River, and then to Ireland. Or, if you like a more northern route, sail out the St. Lawrence river and across the Atlantic.

Valiente Why not out the St. Lawrence and then to Newfoundland? Several acquaintances of mine here in Toronto have done the trip in 30 footers and say it's one of the friendliest places on Earth. Then it's just 1,900 NM to Ireland...and considerably less time spent at sea on the longest leg, which can be a concern given the tankage and stowage of even a 20,000 33 footer (geez, how "traditional" is it?)
