I saw your ad at Bonita Bill's yesterday, let me know if you need any help. I sailed from Fort Myers to Honduras last year.

I am the local TowBoatUS Captain here on Fort Myers Beach.

I towed a H31 Ketch into Olsen's a month or two ago, was that you?

Found a captain - may need on more crew aboard

Dear all!

Thank you for all these kind offerings and interests - it is really great to have such a good response!

I now have a captain and we (the captain and I) are considering taking one more crew member aboard.

I will write more about this tomorrow, it is quite late now, thank you for your understanding.

Update - captain - crew - CHARTS!

Dear all!

thanks for your posts. are you interested in going? It will be decided tonight whether we have to look for one more crew member (so far: captain Wally and me and one friend gives us decision this night). We might even take a 4th person - will keep you posted on that.

Dear Victor!

We are now in Key West - the captain had to leave us behind due to a private problem he had to solve up in Maine. My brother, I and Doris (the boat) are on Stock Island (Key West).

I hope you are still interested - even if you could say just "second joice"... well I just gave my "yess" to the first captain who wrote back to me and it appears that did not have the appropriate freedom concering time schedule.

If you are interested, please get back to me as soon as possible, writing me a private message to: sailinglakenicaragua@gmail.com

we woule like to leave as soon as possible!

Fair winds
