Are you looking to hire someone to help you or for free help. There's a big difference between the two, and the people responding will generally have very different qualifications.

Also, there have been several threads about sailing in the GOM that you might want to research.

Finally, how well equipped/outfitted is the Baba Tashing. I am guessing that you just bought this boat from your other threads and that you may not realize whether the boat is in the condition to handle a voyage of this magnitude or not.

Doing this trip with just two people is going to be fairly rigorous. How much sailing experience do you have? Have you single-handed a boat this size for long periods of time—as that is what sailing this boat with just one crew is effectively going to require you to do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
