IMO I would book the Intrepid...no hidden costs ie. fuel surcharges and permits....and it is the state of the art boat at this time...but I would book early....BUSTEDASS said:Hi,
I am new to this board and need some info on LR trips .I am planning to do a 10 day between OCT-JAN either 08 or 09 this will be my first, I have been checking out the different boats from their web sites, since I am from the east coast its kind of hard to make a decision just on that info alone. there are so many to choose from but I think I narrowed it down to 3, the Excel, American Angler, and Intrepid--Any info on these boats good and bad would be appreciated or if anyone has something better to throw in would be great--- if I can make a decision soon I may be able to squeeze a trip in this year.Also I am going with a friend who is prone to get sea sick, is one time of the year better for weather, sea conditions, etc.
Thanks for your help,
you are going on the open ocean and if your friend gets sea sick they need to take some type of medication....there are no perfect times to go to insure perfect weather...I've done trips in Oct when it was like a mill pond and other times it was victory at sea for 10 days.....
