Hunter 34

I'm considering a private share arrangement on a 2002 Hunter 34.

Primarily weekend coastl sailing in the pacific northwest with my wife and 2 kids. We're keen but not terribly experienced so blue water makes fun reading but not something we'd consider for many years.

Would love to hear the good bad and ugly about the vessel and the share concept.

Thanks in advance.

A lot of it depends on the details of the share arrangement.

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.

Very workable with the right people

Having been part of a very successful partnership arrangement, I can say that it is a totally workable arrangement. (see Partnership thread same forum)
BUT.....
It calls for very like-minded people, similar or at least complimentary skills and abilities, a truly workable arrangement of scheduling or sharing, similar priorities with regard to upgrades, upkeep and type of usage. Getting into an arrangement with people you hardly know can be risky.
Have an written agreement, too, on the eventual dissolution of the share arrangement.
That said, you do get access to a larger boat than you might be able to afford on your own, in theory all the work is shared, all costs are halved and the boat itself is much better utilized and the investment more justifiable.
So go for it, but with your eyes wide open. Do the "Pre-nup"!
