The Bus Is Leaving Key West for Cape Cod

Travel in style aboard a rust bucket Louisiana shrimp boat as we crawl up the Eastern Seaboard at 8 knts listening to the sweet hum of a mighty 8/71 Detroit Diesel. Many stops along the way. The thrill of a lifetime. Not to be missed.
Mostly offshore with stops at major ports, little or no ICW.
We need two more people to stand watch on the longer legs.
Trip will take about four weeks and we move only with fair weather.
Early May to mid June.

I live in SW FL and am interested. Please e-mail me with some info

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowning, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing. Semper Paratus!

two crew available

I will be heading to Florida on June 22 and then Panama June 26, so would need to be comfortable finishing by then.

I can send along some pics. Young couple with experience. 38, 23 years old. Always wanted to do that section.

I am interested in making the trip. Although a sailor I have past experience working on offshore fishing vessels, plenty of experience single handing my own sailboat which is now on the hard. I have money to cover my own expenses and can do most repairs if any should be required ( hopefully not but you never know)

I will be working for my Masters' at UNH in the fall and I have already been on the hard for too long.


PS: Oh, yeah, I am not a young kid but closing in on being a senior citizen and told I remind everyone of the picture of the "Gordon's fisherman"
