what experience do I have to have??

I''ve been sailing for about 10 years. I have owned an O''Day 22'' for the past 4 years (a lazer before that), my better half has sailed for at least 15 years and ownes an Islander 24'' I crew regularly on a J105 and am the delivery skipper of the J105 to all our regattas (mostly 1 day to get to and from), I have sailed at night, can navigate, read charts, gps, etc.

Neither of us have US Sailing Bareboat certifications but I have taken a us power squadren course in navigation and feel that I am a very good sailor (I handle a sailboat well,I am safe, cautious, can anchor well, dock, etc. etc.)

What specifically are charter companies looking for , before allowing a bareboat charter?? (besides ponying up tons of cash)
