Mast Shipping fall 2015-South from Oswego or Chicago

3205 Views 12 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  svjobeth
Ahoy. We are planning to depart the Great Lakes for points south in the fall of 2015 (Aug-Sept). We will be going via either Oswego or possibly Chicago for a great loop experience. We met a couple from Michigan who went from Chicago in their C42 last fall, and had a great time. No crab pots, tides or hurricanes.

We would like to find information on shipping our 60' mast, preferably with other similar minded adventurers.

Anyone with information or wishing to team up to save cost can post or pm me.

Is your plan to do the loop or only to get south? If the latter, I would highly recommend taking the Erie over to the Hudson river, putting the stick back on and heading south. If your 60ft mast is keel stepped, you can probably transit most of the ICW, but be able to sail as conditions permit. Why would one want to motor down the Mississippi on a dismasted sailboat?
