If you go all the way out the St. Lawrence around Gaspe into the Gulf of St. Lawrence and to Halifax
it is spectacular. No mast issues. Fast run.
There are huge advantages to a fresh water boat out of the Great Lakes. Salt
water is incredibly corrosive.
1. 4 to 5 month in the water per year (think UV on the decks, finish, canvas
2. 1/2 to 1/3 the use compared to a year around boat in the tropics.
3. no salt
water inside the boat
4. Little or no corrosion
on all fittings and fasteners
5. no salt mist/air on the electronics and electrical
6. No corrosion
on the ground tackle
