It took us 5 days, could have done it in less but we were having to much fun! Once we got there we spent two days hanging around Ft. Lauderdale and playing at the local clubs. I just broke up a month before with a GF of 5 years....ya get the picture...
Man, that trip was one I'll never forget...my liver hurts thinking about it... When you're out to sea for 10 hrs a day..what else is there to do but drink beer... then when you get to port..what else is there to do but visit the local gentlemens clubs...
Bonus was being a hot bod judge at Shooters! The extra bonus was the chick I met in Las Olas...

My family ran from NJ to Canada once and I think they made it a 2-3 day trip each way.
- There is 275 miles from AC to Troy took about 6-7 hours. Getting me there at Noon at the latest.
-Champlain Canal is a bunch of locks over 55 miles limited to 10MPH , I got out of the last Lock in Whitehall at 7:00 pm. I did go over 10 in some areas but just maybe 15 mph. Got spanked for speed at one lock since they know your time from one lock to the other, and the same operator runs both of those two locks, driving from one to the other...
Far from a impossible task. That Fountain ran Faster than a 36 Chris Craft is my bet.

sounds like your bets paid off GLH, pretty impressive for anyone let alone a 24 yr old.
I did the trip from ny to north florida with my dad in a 38 bertram......I remember looking at mad dad and thinking he has to be the strongest man alive, one hand on the steering wheel and one on the throttles.....I was only about ten but i remember a lot about that trip.......
IF YOU CAN TURN YOUR NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH!!!!!!
There's nothing harmonious or Zen-like about a Cigarette ride. It's an anarchic kind of rush—the nautical equivalent of Viagra.
