I'm planning to sail from Toronto to New York this summer. I would really appreciate if someone can give me any feedback, suggestions or comments about stopovers, mooring, locks, US custom paperwork, fueling, docking, shopping, dining etc. Thank you!

Got any specifics? Where in New York? NYC? Or just the north coast of the State? Erie Canal to the Hudson? St. Lawrence Seaway to the ocean?

Avoid going out the gulf of St Law unless u like being in subarctic conditions. Was there 2 summers ago. 6 layers of clothing in early July. Never mind the 8 knot currents and huge tides. We had quite a few close calls. U need to know what u r doing on that body of water.

Why :| ?

Drive down like a gentleman & you can put in any where from Maine to Montauk; Oceanside to Bay side.

You got a lot of great spots in between...

For the experience Gaz.

Why do the Great Loop, when you can drive to all of those states, and see more of them?

If you have the time, have the boat, and the inclination to use it in the way it was designed for, go for it. Live life. You don’t get many second chances to do so. :D

Interesting that the OP joined almost two years ago, and this is his/her first, and so far last, thread and post. :o

Talking about sailing u got that boat in the water yet ! , Oh I forgot ur still waiting on the snow plow to come & make access from ur home to the marina & then call the Coast guard to come with the Ice breaker & open up the water for U ! right :P
Where as I,ve been working on my boat on its dock most days finishing off Mods & up-grading my steering & fuel & electrical systems , my new Radar arch is in just waiting on it being delivered :( then start my radar radome & solar installation once the Arch is mounted :)
Then I can go sailing too :wink:
