If you have lots of time and are confident with a more challenging passage you can go down the St Lawrence River and around Nova Scotia. This is much, much further and gives you access to some incredible cruising grounds. We have done a recent circumnavigation and still have southern Newfoundland at the top of our list of cruising grounds. It is incredible. I would not want to take this route without radar though. Lots of fog between the lower St Lawrence River and Maine.

Getting your mast down is no big deal. The boat does not need to be hauled. There are marinas at both ends of the canal that will do it for you. You store it on deck for the canal passage. You have one choice to make. You can enter the canal system at Buffalo or at Oswego near the the SE corner of Lake Ontario. If it is a pure delivery the Buffalo option is best, but if you want to be a tourist then the Lake Ontario option is good.
