Charters for less than 1 week...YES

I''m often frustrated when heading off on vacation...this has happened at least three
times. I only want to charter for 3-4 days,
not a week, and I go in the off season, so its low traffic time. Charter operations
tend to "force" you toward a week, at least in terms of cost.

Day rates are way to high over a 3-5 day period, the selection of boats limited (usually day sailers), and so on. This has
happened to me in the USVIs, the Keys, and
other FLA locations. As a businessman, it
bothers me to have an asset setting idle, when it could be making money (particularly
in the off season).

Reactions? Solutions? Suggestions?
