We have a Pearson 530 which we sail in the Antilles, offering what we call "The Cruising Experience", an opportunity for those who dream of one day of cruising on their own boat, to actually experience cruising w/o having to buy a boat and then find out they really do not like the lifestyle. These are NOT charters, in the normal sense of the word; we do not cater to their every need, they become crew on a cruising boat. Joining us on our sails, we do not return to the point of embarkation, they disembark wherever they choose along our route.
Anyway, back to the question; where would it be acceptable to post a link to our site and offer this service to the members?
Thanks,
Captain Andrew & Nikki
Hi Andrew,

If you receive any type of monetary compensation, that is considered advertising. In order to advertise, you must take out an ad. This forum is supported in part by ad revenues, so it would be kinda hard to tell one member it is ok to advertise for free while we charge another for it.

Sorry!!

Brian
