Hello all, do any of you folks have "first hand" experience on the Great Loop / ICW
. I am bringing a trawler
from Gulf side of Florida
to Lake St Clair, can anyone advise which route
is shorter, the gulf side up to Lake Michigan or the Atlantic side up into Lake Ontario
or Erie. They appear to be similar in actual mileage but I suspect the Atlantic side is more direct because your not following a twisting winding river all the way. Is there any reason one might favour one route
over another? This is to be a delivery
style trip, not a sight seeing holiday so the most important criteria is time and cost.
Any comments, advice greatly appreciated.
