Don't know about "soon" but we'll be passing through in August on way to Bahamas.
NY State Canal System is my absolute favourite cruising ground.

Some of the boats are probably the Great Loop cruisers making their way north. We will finish the Great Loop tomorrow in Solomons MD. Awesome trip, never a bad day in 13 months.

Sounds awesome. That is my plan the year I retire (not for another 15 years though).

Do you usually go to the Bahamas during hurricane season? Are there good hurricane holes available to ride out a storm? I have only chartered there in June so have no idea.
