Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.

I noticed a story in the local boat paper that a marina was cracking down on boat owners who were advertising the use of their boat as a bed and breakfast . When he finds them, their out . The owner that is . There is a boat owner in my marina that takes people out for a inner bay wine and cheese cruise . He has a six pack license , insurance , alcohol license, and he had to pay for and take a food handling class . He also has some kind of deal with the marina ie. he pays a extra fee to the city . IMO if you are going to charge a customer for the use of your boat in any way . You will need to do it properly ( licenses, insurance ) Plus you should talk to the marina manager . IMHO
