Has the date been finalized? Or atleast the weekend? 29/30th looks good for me (so far)

@TVM Guys: are we going in a single vehicle or ...?

Ive spoken to a friend of mine who owns a houseboat (Impresario), he will check availability on the 29th and revert - in the meanwhile please check with your contacts too.

Srijit - it will be Sunday the 30th. Sunday seems convenient for most people.

Thats 14 confirmed so far with about 5 maybes. Some folks are still to post here, too.

We will therefore need a boat that can take 20+ comfortably - please book accordingly.

Sorry, my bad. 30th (SUNDAY) it is.

We can tenatively plan to leave after breakfast and arrive at about 10-11 am, start off immediately and return just after dusk.

EDIT: My friend has confirmed availability, his secretary will call up A S H V I N with rates etc. I need a rough count for food, and also a separate count of veggies as the food will comprise almost 100% of things that swim or crawl or walk. I'm veggie.

Remember - this is a boat, so you swim if you're late.

The houseboat is quoted at Rs.4,000 for the period of use + extra for food per head (since they are meant for families and small groups - they will have to charge our group extra).

supreme baleno if you can get a better rate from your relative, please let us know. We need a boat that can take about 25 to be on the same side.

Steer, talked to him just now and these are the details :

In the evenings, they have to wind up by 6PM because fishermen put out their nets and the boats could damage them. So timing would be 11:30 to 6PM.

1) A new boat with upper deck : Rs5000 (only boat rent).
2) A boat with lengthier living area, but no upper deck : Rs6000 (rent only)

Food would be Rs300 per person and includes :
1) Welcome drink
2) Lunch - chicken and fish with rice, roti etc
3) Evening tea and snacks

I have given rippergeo his phone number and you guys can call directly to confirm or discuss rates etc.

P.S. : I think you guys have got a more economical option @ Rs4000.

Yeah we have Rs.4,000 and food at Rs.200 per head. Will try to include short-eats as well within Rs.200 and close the deal.

Guys please note that if you're on the list you're 100% in with no ifs and buts except for family emergencies and stuff - the plan is based on the confirmations.
