Re: Companion/ helper

Thanks for the reply. Actually it's a power boat and I'll certainly consider your reply when it's nearing time to go
Thanks
Phil

Re: Companion/ helper

How long will the trip take? Can you tell us a little bit more about the day to day? Do you plan on making any stops along the way to see anything? Expenses? Thanks!

Re: Companion/ helper

Trip will take about 3weeks. Taking my time doing a little sight seeing. You just have to pay for your own food.

Sounds good. Am semi retired, in my 50s, experienced, electronic and mechanical repair experience. Oh, and fully funded. Probably interested in a "segment" of this trip. Are you any relation to the person who took a pontoon down the Mississippi named FREEBIRD?

Re: Companion/ helper

No relation to "other"Freebird. ( guess I wasn't as original as I thought)
What segment would you be interested in?
Have you seen a picture of the boat?

Re: Companion/ helper

How often do you plan on stopping and going ashore? What sights are you looking to see? What and how do you plan to eat everyday? Thanks!

Re: Companion/ helper

No specific things to see just wandering. About 75% nights at marinas. Eating lite on boat occasionally at restaurants
