If I understand correctly, you want your licensed captain friend to operate the boat, not the owner?
Best of luck.
In no way do we expect someone with a large sailboat to hand over the keys, just wanted them to know that we have some experience to help out aboard while out sailing, unless they feel comfortable letting us go, but I personally would like the owner to come along so he can enjoy our company and so there are no worries on his/her boat.
Also we know this is alot of people, and that can always change, I am open to suggestions and advice as well, I'm currently looking into other options like the marinas but have pretty much done most of the work on that. It is possible but with a membership, large fees, and classes, it's hard to justify for 1day.
Thanks for reading and commenting everyone.
