I have searched the forums for a straight answer last night and again this morning and can only find information suggesting it might not be worth it even if possible.

That is not an answer to the question though it is just a personal opinion.

I am hoping someone or several of you will focus solely on my question and the logistics involved.

Is it possible to sail or motor from Lake Erie to the Atlantic Ocean without removing or stepping the mast? If so what is the maximum mast height with out having to use techniques like water bags to heel the boat? What is the route and is there a suggested cruising book.

If it is impossible a simple no is fine. If it is possible but stupid please just say it is possible and what route to take. I don't want to hear about all the easy places to get the mast down or how it only takes a day and saves so much time ect, there are already plenty of posts in the forums covering the trip using the mast removal method.

I simply want to know is it possible. I have not found a simple yes or no.
