Re: A penny for your thoughts

Frankly - just to highlight one area - the insurance at 3.5k a year is waaaaayyyyy low.
For a business, with charter guest - on a circumnavigation - take it way up.
Considering you have to make schedules the fuel alone will eat that up.

The other area - you can not legally charter in the US unless you are licensed - and as a consumer of charter boats - no way I'm going blue water sailing with a skipper who is still in a learning phase.
