: Quick Background: I purchased a 48' Jeanneau
: Trinidad about a year ago with hopes of
: establishing a sailing/diving charter
: business out South Florida. I live up
: North in Wisconsin and unfortunately, did
: not get down to Florida as often as I
: planned. I hoped to run at least one
: charter per month, especially during the
: winter months. But I got busier than
: planned with work up north and only ran
: about half as many trips. Had an
: anti-siphon valve go bad and ended up
: totally rebuilding my Perkins 4-236 in the
: salon. I had her up for sale since Feb.
: 1, but big boats don't seem to sell well
: with a war going on in a sagging economy.
: I decided to give it a little time and
: then sail her up to Lake Michigan if she
: didn't sell by May 1.
: Well the time has come and I'm ready to head
: North. I'm interested in any practical
: knowledge anyone could share other than
: the basic info contained in the cruising
: guides (which I have already purchased).
: I am planning on taking the outside
: passage up to New York Harbor (weather
: permitting, of course). Then up the
: Hudson to Troy and thru the Erie Canal to
: Lake Erie. I will have 3 or 4 crew
: members for most of the trip and would
: like to make the trip in as little time as
: possible. I've been told it can be done
: in as little as 3-4 weeks.
: Any suggestions on routing, good marinas and
: where to have the mast lowered in Troy and
: raised in Lake Erie? Etc. etc. ...
: I apologize for the long post. Thanks.
