I did not get that trip though I would do it if I got to go to Egypt again. I think the boat that I have heard so much about is called, "The Saint John" or some variation on that theme. It was built on Lake Nassar...many boats had sailed there and were anchored just off shore on the evening of February 21, l999 and in the AM of February 22. Look in the NYTimes archives,I think they had an article in one of there special travel magazines that seem to be published quarterly. Be prepared that nothing grows on the edge of the lake, it is a bit spooky looking if you have not been there before. I would assume it is the high mineral content of the water. Also, take a good flashlight. They have not figured out how to get reliable electricty to Abu from Aswan and the power is on generators and failed with some regularity I think.
Lucky you if you get to go.
