I did the run from Red Bank, NJ to Ft. Lauderdale (on the outside) about 7 years ago with my boss in a 60 ft. Viking. I think it cost about $2K a day for fuel and that was in 2000....

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...

That was the only part we ran on the inside, and that was because there was a Tropical Storm out to sea. We thought about going thru the cut but not being familiar with it we opted to go out Ocracoke but still had to go around cape lookout. The picture I posted of the sunset was after we rounded Cape Lookout and were headed to Wrightsville Beach.

It took me about 4 hours to run up to Catskill Creek in the Scarab, cruising at 50 mph and that's not even to the locks yet... So figure 2 hrs to AC, 4 hrs to where I went up to and another couple hours from Catskill, past Albany to the Lake... has to be at least a 10-12 hr day...

My family ran from NJ to Canada once and I think they made it a 2-3 day trip each way.

-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.
