Peter, we will do the raffle, if you can though, please post what is in the raffle. That is very nice of you, and wish you were coming.
i did speak to Mike Tuna, and maybe Mike has one guy who would slip into your spot. I believe your spot was Bob Codkillas spot. We will try to get someone to take your place if possible.
I will also have a raffle off for a bunch of jigs and tubes also, so there will be 2 raffles at the end of the trip for this trip.
Bill, for food, what I can recommend is to go into an Italian Deli that makes prepared food and pick up something. It is more easier, no hassle and usually a tray, or few containers of one of those specialties goes over well. I know its tough to think of what to get, but this is usually what I have done on the last few private charters I have been on.
Also, the Mike Tuna caravan will be leaving from Queens NY, between 12-1 pm on Friday. Anyone who wants to tag along is welcome to. We are no speed demons so if your pants are on fire to get there, you will have to make other arrangements~
Bunks.....I have been asked since the old list does not coordinate with the new bunk setup. Please, we will work this out when we are on the boat. From what I have been told, the 3 bunk rooms can be thought of like this: first one coming down the stairs - ICE LOCKER, middle one is COLD but comfortable and you do need a sleeping bag, and the forward bunk room has a cool breeze coming in but you can lay above your blanket. Again I am passing along what I have been told and if someone does not like the ice locker or cool breeze effect, then we can work it out on the boat.
If anyone has any questions, you can contact me and I should get back to you during the day.
