2.  FAQs:  What types of trips and boats can I travel on?

3.  More FAQs:  General information:  What questions should I ask the outfitter before comitting?  What are typical cancellation policies?  Boatman compensation and tipping etc.

4.  Bringing stuff:  What personal items should I bring?  What about clothes?  Alcoholic beverages?  Cameras and electronics?
