Hi,
I am 55 years old successful businessman, in the process of acquiring 36' diesel yacht in Tennessee. I am a novice boater and have no experience with large boats. I would like the boat delivered to Houston, TX. I will be working as a crew on the boat and will attempt to learn the ropes on my own boat as I think that is the only way to do it.
The route will be Tombigbee Waterway to Alabama then ICW to Houston.
I am planning this trip sometime late October or mid-November. It is a dual helm boat so cold weather shouldn't be a problem.
Please reply as I have to start planning soon.

Re: Experienced & Qualified Yacht Skipper E Coast, Bahamas, Caribbean (20yrs Navy)

Good day Goldy123

I’m sorry to say that I’m booked out through New Year. This is peak time of year for boat movements - with more notice I would have been delighted to work with you!

Please contact me again if I can assist or advise in the future
Good luck with the transit

Rupert
