What would you say the trip time from Miami to Albany would be, best case scenario? 60ft with about 2100hp.

I'm looking at two boats, one in CT the other in Miami.

If you can do 200 mile days, and assuming no weather or mechanical delays, Miami to Albany should be about 7 or 8 days. Realistically I'd allow for 10.

Re: How long from Albany to Lake Ontario

I can really get asking how long it takes to traverse the canal system, but the need to ask how long it will take for a 60' with 2100hp would take from Miami is utterly ridiculous, if you can't spend a little time looking at charts, calculating distance and fuel consumption then I suggest letting a licensed captain bring up your new pride and joy.

Plan by charting is one thing, but I still like to hear what others have found and how long it took them.

In past discussions there have been huge variances of the over all travel time for a bunch of non Canal based trips and I wanted to get all the input.
