Of course...but I'm hoping to stay on the boat for the most part. Remember to bring your straps for your glasses...you wouldn't want to lose another pair. :)

The ship is quite a bit larger than our :macm: . :o

As crazy as it sound John, the cost of the cruise for nine days comes to about $92 a day :D it was a crazy deal. Of course air faire to Singapore is not included, but not with the freighter cruise either.

Maybe next year we will make it to Canada :?:

I only rent it for nine days Geoff.

It comes with a full compliment to satisfy my needs, wants, and what I did not know I want. :evil:

My :macm: can only handle a crew of six, with me being the chief, cook, and bottle washer. :D

Someday I hope to get it to Canada to visit its cousins.

U need to ask the Admiral if u can get one of these when u come up !
http://www.rentawife.ca/

So as U can relax along with her "Ur Admiral" of course :D :D :D

Now If I find one that can also Crew on a sail boat I,d b more than willing to split the cost with U & seeing as u,d have the Admiral on board ur boat I,d b willing to let the "rent a wife" sleep-over in who ever,s boat I,m sleeping in just out of courteously of coarse :P
