Re: Feedback from someone who has done NYC to Detroit

Just curious. Perhaps you had a particular boat in mind, otherwise, did you look around the Great Lakes? Torresens in Muskegon for one, has a pile of used boats in the broker lot. Many more listed in yacht clubs and the other three marinas in town. No salt water, short seasons, light use. You will find Michigan awash in used boats with our economy still depressed.

Re: Feedback from someone who has done NYC to Detroit

Just sold our Bayfield 29 to a fellow who resides in Connecticut.

He told me that he paid 3400 to have it shipped from Lasalle, Ontario, just outside of Windsor, to the ocean shores somewhere in Connecticut. Sorry, don't remember the exact place in Connecticut.

Bothwell trucking......

Re: Feedback from someone who has done NYC to Detroit

The 35 mk 1 is a great sailing boat. I raced in their one design fleet in Detroit for years. If you want to have some idea of what you can encounter on the trip, you can review our Blog from last year. We did the trip both ways on our trip to the Bahamas.
Check it out at Afeica.wordpress.com
If you need help bring the boat back to the neighborhood maybe we can help you.

Re: Feedback from someone who has done NYC to Detroit

I can't help on the nyc to Detroit, I did a delivery from the upper Mississippi River above St. Louis to Detroit. It was a 47' power boat the trip was 1054 miles completed in 19 days, we lost 2 days due to weather on Lake Huron and anchored out all but 4 nights. I do not think breaking it into weekend trips would work out very well, you will burn up a lot of $$$ for transient slips where you leave it until your return. I think it would be a great trip but I would think the traveling back and forth to where you leave the boat would kill a lot of the enjoyment of such a trip. My advice and it's worth less than you're paying for it is to plan well using Active Captain and cruising guides for the areas you'll travel thru. Make sure the boat is equipped, provisioned and in condition to make the trip. Pay close attention to weather forecast and do not risk going out when the wise sailor would stay in port or a safe anchorage, the boat will most likely take a lot more than you and your crew but you don't want to find that out. The best piece of advise is enjoy the trip and take a lot of pics to remember it. Good luck

Re: Feedback from someone who has done NYC to Detroit

I have been looking in the great lakes area and there is a allied seabreeze that is a strong candidate. Slightly lesser in equipment, a slightly higher price and I'm need of more refinishing, but its got the allied blue water reputation and a bronze swing keel to get it into the shallows. Its also pretty much right where I need it to be. The commentary from this thread is a big part of the cost benefit decision on the boat choice. The real trip is down and around to Seattle and a lot of people argue for the offshore route. Makes the allied look quiet appealing considering the work to get the c&c here. Part of the goal is to get a young lady up to speed on sailing big water, so more time spent sailing lake Michigan makes us more prepared for the real journey.

Also, I had one of my C&C 35s shipped from NYC to Detroit for about $2100 4 years ago.
