Lake St. Clair to NY, via Erie Canal and Hudson River
We're planning a cruise from Lake St. Clair to Maine, and would like to know the best place to find info needed for using the Erie Canal and the Hudson River, to come out at NY and head up the coast to Portland. This would be done in a 42' boat (48' LOA), about 18' tall. Any suggestions welcomed!

there is a 15 foot height limit on the Erie barge canal but you can still do it by going through the Welland canal and entering the barge canal at Ostwego NY. easily done. you will be going downstream through the Welland. it is a fun trip.
