Re: how long ?

Depends on weather, and how fast you wish to go. Do you wish to sightsee along the way, or just do it in the fastest time??

If you treat the Great Lakes like the open ocean you should do fine, although lakes such as Erie have particularities due to their overall shallowness.

More info would be helpful.
