do you intend buying a felucca? it would be quite a journey from aswan to cairo and feluccas are dependant on the wind which can be a problem at certain times of the year.There are also restrictions in place for travellers from other countries. you may be able to get advice from the egyptian tourist website.
when i went to aswan three years ago they all seemed to have their own "captains" . im sure they would accompany you on a journey but im not so sure about you piloting one yourself.
good luck, egypt is one of my fav places and you cant beat sailing down the nile.
