Hello, My inquiry is two-fold:
First, I hope someone out there will have the firsthand experience to provide a simple yay-nay answer to the following.
Second, I hope someone may have a good resource (web or book) for someone starting their nautical nav and chart education.
Question: Is it possible to sail/motor a cruising class boat with a traditional mast
to/from Lake Champlain to the Atlantic Ocean
and to/from the other Great Lakes
-The information I find on this topic is so segmented I am not sure how to piece it together. If one sails
South from Lake Champlain to the Hudson
River it looks like there are fixed bridges of 15' so I surmise that the South passage
is out. Is there a North passage
with mast-friendly bridge heights or draw-bridges?
**forgot to mention, draft
is not a concern but beam is around 22ft (cat)
Thanks so much for the help.
