mattresses or hammocks, under mosquito nets, with sheets, pillow
cases, pillows, and blankets.
The only private room is the outhouse, bucket shower room, which has
a privacy wall and a door that latches. It has a large mirror, towels,
soap, shampoo, and an endless supply of toilet paper. Don't laugh;
those are all rare commodities in the upper Amazon.
Dawn on the Amazon I is powered by a 60 HP Johnson four-stroke
engine, one of the quietest engines on the upper Amazon.
My Amazon boat carpenters built her of purple heart wood, with 23

can be rolled down to protect against a big rain.
Dawn on the Amazon I comes equipped with life jackets, binoculars,
bird books, and maps. She is safe, comfortable, beautiful and ready for
