KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Charlie A. Green, his family and friends are finally on their way down the Missouri River, eventually bound for the South Pacific in their 46-foot homemade sailboat. The classic design brigantine, named after Green's 3-year-old daughter Conjelta Lee, shoved off from near downtown Kansas City Thursday after the crew shared Thanksgiving Day dinner aboard the ship. On board were Green, 43; his wife, Carolyn; his daughter, Conjetta Lee; Steve Boatright, 20; Jerry Thompson, 44, and the ship's designer, J.C. Waters of Independence. Waters, a licensed river pilot, will guide the craft to St. Louis. Green will be joined by his son Charles Jr., 24, in St. Louis. Then its on to Houston by way of the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. Thompson is the only seasoned sailor in the group. The other members of the crew will take sailing les- sons in Houston before continuing the trip. From Houston, the Conjetta Lee will head for Hawaii by way of the Panama Canal and San Francisco. Green said he will do some contracting work in Hawaii to earn more expense money for their travels to Tahiti and other undetermined points. He says he hopes to find a spot in I he South Pacific where he can go into the contracting business or open a saloon. Green built the ship over the last two years in the back yard of his mother's Kansas City, Kan., home with profits from selling the Red Dog Saloon. He said it cost about $30,000 to build the brigantine sailer, and about $500 more to transport the 15.2-ton craft from his mother's yard to the water.
