I have gone through this for my business.... but it isn't really applicable to what you're doing. My business, at least the one I've gone through this with, is a non-profit research foundation... so it has vastly different qualifications for grants than what you have.

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.

I appreciate that.

Like I said, I have grant writers with my company now. They've helped a buddy of mine with some funding for his side business. Its just a matter of research. Talk to them on tuesday about it when I get back into my office.

Thanks.

got anybody on staff thats got a USCG 6-pack? Gonna need that for a "charter" even bareboat requires a holder on staff.

How about anyone on staff that can tell you what the insurance issues are going to be
re: someone elses boat that is probably financed going into charter (probably a violation of the loan agreement)
to whos insurance is going to cover drunk client number one when he pilots a boat under your charter into a bazillion dollar yacht...
hint one, ain't going to be the boat owners,
hint two, ain't going to be drunk guys,
hint three, ain't going to be the bazillion dollor yacht guys either.
that leaves... yours.

Care to hazard a guess as to what the quote to me was for that type of coverage? (yea, I was considering taking over a small day charter company here)
195,000.00 yes, thats right almost 200k for... sit down... ready?
500k of coverage. yup, 500k.
(from 2 diff companies, within acouple of grand)

Want to go without it? uh... No, not possible, can't get the bus. cert. from the state without it.

I'd go with the wooden boat idea.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs

And the part about my taxes, I would rather see it going into small business ventures then where its being squandered right now.
I have NO desire to live off of the "public trough". I wouldn't say no...I'd say HELL NO!!!

No, I don't want to see MY tax dollars going to small business ventures. Use your own damn money, not mine. I want to see the money stay where it belongs...in MY bank account. To put it bluntly, I made my money by working 12-14 hours 6 days a week and yes, I used and risked my own money, not someone elses.

But, I know that there are tons of grants available for here in the good ole USSA (UNITED SOCIALIST STATES OF AMERICA).

Just my 10,000,000 cents (this year)!!!

Unfortunately, we have little say in where our tax dollars go.

I do agree with you though, I want to see my money stay in my bank account too, thats the reason I always look for investors in my ventures.

Sorry for "going off" on you, but we just wrote a rather large check to good ole Uncle Sam.

What type of business are you in? Maybe you can help me get some of our money back!!!
