Re: Need one hand willing to work for travel from Northeast to Southwest
This sounds like a great adventure. However, if I read it right, the boat is a 1977 Newport 28. Do you really know what kind of shape she is in? Before setting sail, you need to do a thorough check of the boat, ie: engine, sails, hoses, gps, radio, safety equipment, etc. Also, you will need to make sure you have the latest charts for cruising area, and tools and any necessary spare parts to do emergency repairs at sea. Make sure the boat registration is current and a membership to Towboat US or SeaTow might be a good insurance investment. Plan the trip carefully and take your time to prepare the boat and yourself for the trip and you can have a safe adventure. Good luck and enjoy.
