I think your estimates may be a little low for cost sharing. I usually figure $15/person/day for food on delivery and you are including other costs in your estimate of less than $11/person/day.

Best of luck with your recruiting effort. There are lots of people out there up for adventure. Try to find someone who can cook - there are long stretches of the ICW when you may have to be in the cockpit unless you are fortunate enough to find someone else that can really understand piloting. Do you have an unlimited Towboat/US policy? Best money you can spend.

You will probably find that judgment and personality are more important than skill and experience for what you propose.

Have a good time.
sail fast and eat well, dave
