Sarasota to Great Lakes

Needed- shipmate

to help motor 42 ft power-cat (africat) from sarasota FL to the great lakes in MI. Coming up TN river to the Ohio to mississippi to illinois to chicago. All expenses paid. My name is Paul. I am 57 years old and in good health. Would love to find an easygoing, older, experienced, boater to assist in transport. No hard work involved. The boat is in very good condition with 400 hrs on it. Has very large fuel range and all the comforts of home. My new home port will be in lake st. claire MI. If this interests you, please call me at 248-417-9354 or email me at ppkeech@comcast.net.

Re: Sarasota to Great Lakes

I wish I had time off work, I would love a nice cruise up the miss. I'm even in Cape Coral. How much time are you planning on taking to get there?

Re: Sarasota to Great Lakes

Hi Paul - I'm intrigued, very interested to learn more. Like Crickett also expressed, clocks (and the time they keep) weigh heavily. But this piqued my interest to see if I can join this "glimpse of America", But before I wax poetic, let me just say I'll PM to discuss and see where it goes. But I mainly wanted to here the timetables, how soon is your departure time?
Will chat via PM & thanks

Re: Sarasota to Great Lakes

What is your schedule? I'am experienced on the the upper mis, Illinois rivers and have taken a 47' Concorde from the mis river to the Detroit river. I'am 67, retired diesel mechanic in good health and interested in hearing more details of the boat and your plans for the trip. Send a pm if you want to chat.

Re: Sarasota to Great Lakes

Update: Currently in Mobile Alabama. Heading north from here. Stuck here a day or two. Expect to be in Demopolis, Al in two or three days.

Still in need of a shipmate, but especially one who knows the rivers and the locks.

Txt me if you have availability and interest. 248-417-9354 (paul)
