Looking for a boat to row from New Orleans to Progresso, Mexico

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Open-water rowing : One Thread

I am investigating the plausibility of rowing from New Orleans to Progresso, Mexico across the Gulf of Mexico. Does anyone know where I might begin looking for a boat or boat design suitable for such a trip?

You might get advice from David Bean who has rowed most of that route recently. David's boat, LONE STAR, is eight feet long so may not be your idea of the perfect boat, but David is looking for a larger boat, presumably based on his experience in those waters. You can reach David at bean2846@aol.com. Good luck.
