Lightbulb new multihull cruiser

Purchased Endeavourcat 36 in May 03 and will depart in May 04 for a two year cruise. Spent the summer and fall outfitting the boat and beleive it is ready to go. Just love the comfort and livability of the Endeavourcat.
Will start from the Chesepeack Bay(Oxford,Md.) and head for the Great Lakes via the Hudson River and Erie Canal. South through the center of the United States, down the Florida coast, through the Bahamas, and further south to the BVI. Work our way futher east and south and spend hurricane season cruising the north coast of South America. From there coastal cruise onward to Cancun and make the gulf crossing from there to Florida and back up the East coast to the Chesepeak Bay arriving in June of 2006.

Would like to hear from cruisers that have made similar trip or just some feedback on the proposed trip.

Hi, what do you mean South through the centre of the country???Can you explain to someone from the other side of the world whom is interested in sailing to your country in the future.


For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

Home Waters

The Mississippi River, accessable from Lake Michigan via the Illinois Waterway, it's a navigable route to & from the Gulf of Mexico.

This is what we somewhat oddly refer to as the Western River System ... confusing to anybody that looks at a map of North America. The term, however, came into use when this area of the country was the west.

You'll find quite a bit available on the web & if you want to you can message me for more information.

In 97 I sailed my Searunner Trimaran from the Chesepeak to Lake Superior. I have also done the Illinios and Mississippi River systems. Email me if you would like more info or have any questions.

Ahoy Mates,

Ahoy from OZ

G'Day Fairdinkum
You have me as green as a pickle with envy, I was reading about the inland waterways the other night they look superb. Fairdinkum is an unusual term for over your way spent some time in OZ ?
