Bought our 1993 3688 and left Point Bay marina in Charlotte, VT followed the Champlain canal system down through 10 locks and into the Hudson River. Took the Hudson out through New York Harbor, around Manhattan and through Hell Gate NY into the Long Island Sound. Took about four days, lots of hazards in the canal and Hudson given that the canals had just opened for the season and lots of debris was floating around in both.
All in all, a very scenic and peaceful trip. For most of the trip we were the only boat on the water. Once we got into the lower part of the canal system we passed a few sailboats heading north.
