Reddogleader-

I seriously doubt that you will find any takers. For someone to rent out their boat would generally require that they have a commercial insurance policy, rather than a recreational policy, or risk voiding their policy as most recreational policies do not allow you to rent or charter your boat.

Most commercial policies are by charter companies, and chartering a boat for liveaboard use is going to be fairly expensive. It is far more profitable for them to do shorter charters and also far less risky in terms of wear and tear on the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
