Re: Owner Time Purchase
I purchased owners time from a Mooring's owner. (50' Bene) We received full Moorings service at half the cost.
Also, the owner spent an hour on the phone with me, giving me valuable advice re anchorages and the little quirks of his boat: loose wire on the vhf mic and tricky switch on the windlass, both of which Moorings was supposed to fix but had not.
try the traveltalkonlne forum for lost of charter info...I posted there looking for charter info and the owner I chartered from replied with his offer. Worked out great... We did, however, go in the off season - Thanksgiving week. It was relatively uncrowded, but the water was a little rougher than other times I have been. The sailing was awesome due to the strong, steady winds, but the snorkeling was a little cloudy and bouncy in places.
