Does it sound wonderful to have a lovely three day sail in an old boat? Here are a few things to think about before you sail away.
Don't forget to check the price. Instead of sailing in one of the oldest boats in America, it may be possible to take an actual, fairly luxurious cruise.
Do find out what the size of your room on the boat is. If you are hoping to have any romantic action in your cabin it would be good to know ahead of time that you and your partner each have a small bunk and these bunks are not on the same wall.
Do know ahead of time if you and your partner can both even stand up at the same time in your "room" on the boat. If not, then you need to consider other options.
Don't leave without checking more than once to make sure you have Your luggage. Even though you carefully packed All the luggage, did Yours actually make it to the boat? If not you will have a fantastic time with no changes of clothing and nothing warmer than a sweatshirt. So make sure you have your luggage before you leave.
Do find out if the crew is planning on having a lot of assistance from you and the rest of the paying customers and if that's the case, then don't get on the boat. Like, for instance, doing your own dishes or pulling in ropes and such.
Don't think you will get everything outlined in the brochure. Will you just ride around on the boat being sure you've seen that shoreline for five times already or will you ever go onto land during this excursion? What you can do is ask the boat crew if you will see any sea creatures promised and ask about the island lobster bake.
Don't even think about planning on real bathroom facilities but you do need to ask where the shower is.
Don't take this kind of boat trip if you're not fond of small spaces. Besides the berth area being very small, the galley is the only place you can play games or cards but it's also tiny and often used to fix the meals.
Don't consider this boat trip unless you life not seeing any sea life or not eating the promised lobster, of if you enjoy working while you're on a very expensive vacation in the smallest accommodations.
