BVega and SD,
BVega, not really sure what you are asking. SD, not really sure what you are responding.
If you have gone to sailonline, and you obviously have based on the URL, you know what Owners time is. Sailonline is reputable and I have friends that have used them and Owners time. The owner gets 6-8 weeks of usage out of the boat in different seasons as part of their deal. Most do not use all of that time and therefore sell that time. After that sale to a private party you deal with the charter company for most everything else just as if it was a normal charter. You just save money becasue the owner can afford to charter cheaper than the charter company for their owners week. In the end the owner makes more money for the week than a normal week, and you save some dollars. From there it is all supply and demand...so that may be what SD is saying, you may pay more for owners time in December than July, but you would anyway based on the seasonal charter rates.
Have a nice trip.
