Journey 20
June 1 & 2, 2005

On June 1 & 2, 2005 a 15 year old boy was provided a deep sea fishing trip off of Long Island, New York. This young man has been wheelchair bound for most of his life and has limited arm strength and daily challenges.

Bob Rocchetta of Rainbow Charters gladly provided the journey for this young man at a greatly reduced price. He has special equipment that allowed this young man to roll his wheelchair right onto the boat with no worries. Bob was even able to accommodate his limited arm strength with an electric reel.

The day was beautiful with calm waters, after about 3 1/2 hours into the journey they had to return to the dock as the young man and his guardian both became sea sick. No fish were caught but they had a memorable adventure and great experience anyway.
