looking for Loop Input

We are on the St Lawrence River with a President 43 dual cabin.We are wanting to downsize next year,but would like to get most of a summer season before doing this with our present boat.When would new potential Loopers who would use this route as beginning want to get underway from locations up here?
Thanks in advance.

I'm not a looper so may be off but if I were embarking on a loop my thinking would be I want a full season on the St St Lawrence, Trent Severn and Georgian Bay, N Channel. Before heading S.
I would want a boat mid to end of this season to get used to it, build confidence in it and get anything needed done before start of next season.
Just one opinion!

For much more spectacular scenery and less on the beaten path, I'd rather head out the St. Lawrence and make the "Down East Loop" around the Gaspe and any number of routes through the maritime provinces, thence to New England ond on up the Hudson, etc. Having done big chunks of this on our boat (Hatteras 56MY) and others on a buddy's (Hatteras 42LRC), I can say it is just wonderful.

Potential Loopers will want to know air draft. Is your vessel more than 19 feet? If so chigaco bridge will be an issue.
