Do you mean this House boat cannot take more than 20 passengers on board? Or there're only 20 seats/chairs available?
Get a bigger one guys!
Even if there're less people, we can hire some good company in form of lap dancers/belly shakers etc..

The houseboat is a 2BHK (yes it has 2 bedrooms, a hall and a kitchen) and can accomodate about 14 people in good comfort, 20 with swalpa adjust maadi.

update!

just got a call from Mr Hari who is arranging the house boat. It seems that the cops/tourist police/authorities are carrying out raids on houseboats and checking how many people are on board. If they are carrying more people than their permit allows licenses get suspended. so the house boat we have planned for has a license to carry only 12 people. have asked him to find something bigger. so if anyone else has some leads, please let me know. thanks.

Steer, who knows that on the eve of the D R I V E, a new collector/SP is posted there and he wants to throw his weight around .

And worse -- what if he is the same one you all encountered in your last D R I V E.

Wow! You mean we have some place for our OTHER guests too?

There're boats available which are permitted to carry 25+ people on board.
I've smsed some contacts numbers to A S H V I N. Please book a boat which suits your needs and meets all legal requirements!

@prabhuav - well we can be aka the CSI Kuttanmaar!

@Steeroid - yes sir you need to take a break from posting for a bit. operating light hand held electronics can be as hazardous as operating heavy machinery under the conditions hehe

Thing is, its season time so the authorities know they can make that extra buck now. but I am on the lookout for a larger houseboat, so are a few other people. no worries

btw will this series include the much awaited "Singh is drinkinggg" episode???
