The boat in question is a 112' S&S design built by Derecktor... Chartering her looks like a steal @ a mere $50+K/week... I wonder how many of the people who do so realize beforehand how much of the Chesapeake will be off limits, given her 13' draft?

Ahhh, yes... yet ANOTHER American (OK, presumably) yacht owner proudly flying the flag of a foreign tax haven... Don't ANY of these guys have an ancestor who might have paid the ultimate price, at some far-flung place like Bastogne, or Tarawa, and been returned to their homeland in a box draped with the Stars & Stripes?

Just sayin'... Sorry, just a particular pet peeve of mine...
