advice

Hello ,

I am checking another Rasmus located in Traverse City,MI. Seems it has been always in fresh water and the asking price is 35K. Dees anybody know the river route from traverse to the Ocean? Also, how can I really trust a surveyor from Traverse City? I mean this surveyor would be hired by the owner (and paid by me). I live in Uruguay South America.
Thanks,
Carlos

Hello Carlos.

You might call 'Coast Marine Survey' Leonard, 1-231-883-4416. He is in Traverse City.

*I have traveled none of the following routes.
Routes: 1. Lake Michigan to Chicago, then Midwestern rivers to gulf of Mexico at Mobile, Alabama or New Orleans, Louisiana. About 1600 miles. Mast down for river trip.
2. Lake Michigan, Huron, Erie, Ontario, St Lawrence Seaway to Gulf of St. Lawrence at Newfoundland, Canada. Mast up
3. Great Lakes to New York river system to New York City. (routes vary, partial closures due to storm damage to locks. Mast down.


BTW, what is the name of the boat?

Best, Ed

I have not done the route down the Mississippi but have done the other two. Are you thinking of this year- it is getting very late in the season? The St Lawrence route is much further but allows access to some terrific cruising in Newfoundland. The New York State canal route is easier but you do need to remove your mast. Not a big problem either up or down. If you decide to go this way I can give you some ideas.

Rasmus and route

First let me say you are lucky to find any H-R boats in fresh water. If it has spent it's life in Lk Mi (or other fresh water) the boat is a fraction of it's real age. I think the last Rasmus built (out of almost 800) was around 1978. Olle Enderlein was the designer and the boats have really performed and held up well. I think that model did a lot to give HR the strong rep they have.
As for survey, if you are the buyer YOU pay for the survey. It's the only way to assure he or she is working in your best interest.

As for the route. We (my wife and I) departed from Lk Mi (Beaver Island) June of 08 out the St. Lawrence. I strongly recommend it! Fantastic trip and very easy. To be honest you could do the St Lawrence without charts it is so well marked. Going down the locks at Welland and St. Lawrence are a breeze. Upon exit the Gaspe is fantastic as is Cape Brenten and Nova Scotia.
Any questions feel free to send PM
