I am looking at a trimaran
up in Georgian Bay and thinking of buying
it and bringing it back to Penobscot Bay in Maine
. I'm trying to figure out if the Seaway or Erie Canal
is the best route
It looks like Erie Canal
is about 1200 miles and Seaway is almost 2000.
I'm also curious about beam. vessel beam seems to be in the ballpark of 30 feet. It looks like the Erie Canal's limiting width is 45' but I am wonder what this means in practice with a large multihull
. Anyone on here taken a beamy boat
down the canal? Are you scraping the sides at times?
All of the seaway info I can pull says the max beam in locks is 26' but that seems crazy... Anyone know otherwise?
