Windsor to Port Colborne

I am just planning a delivery from Windsor to Toronto.
How long is the trip from Windsor to Port Colborn? (nautical miles)
Any recommended route?

Re: Windsor to Port Colborne

If you have to ask you are not ready to deliver a boat. Sorry, but Lake Erie can kick up awful fast and it's a fair distance from one end to the other.

Re: Windsor to Port Colborne

Welcome to Cruisers Forum,from Fort Erie.Upper Niagara.

Lake Erie can be as calm as a toilet bowl,but can kick up a big fuss in a hurry and there can be no-where to hide on the wrong day.

Try reading this blog from around here.

Tell us some more about the boat and your experience.

The right weather and planning makes it relatively easy.

Hey,I may even offer to come with you

Cheers

Not ready? I have done this trip before and was just looking for some general info as I start planning the trip.

If you've done the trip before you should know the distance. Welcome to the forum.
