My name is Chie Shimokawa and I am a japanese university student. My English is poor, but please give me the help. I am interested in the voyage of the river in this island in this summer. I make a ship or a raft with a local person and want to take a trip to the river. I know that a lower basin is cautious of in particular now. Because I want to carry out the plan in summer, I intend to go to Borneo Island to scout in about February. And because the extremely short-term homestay is included the field of vision as one means, I am glad if I have your introduce. And, Therefore the next question is thankful when I get information. 1. Is there the person who can make a ship of old form or a raft in this village? It is not a thing with the motor engine. 2. Is it dangerous that a boat anchors on a river at night? Are there the effective safety measures? I would appreciate very much if I have your prompt reply. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks,

With a group of 4 persons we are planning a trip of 2 days from Sandakan to Sukau. We would like to travel by boat to and from Sukau and stay one night in Sukau. Does Osman's Homestay facilitate such a boat trip? If yes can you inform me about times en costs, if not, does anybody know an organization who does offer such a trip against a reasonable price? Thanks in advance!
