Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

SamSpade .... you need a signature file that states "Charter Boat Operator". You are more than welcome to state your side of the case and we acknowledge your right to defend yourself but you must identify yourself as a commercial operator.

KnotKnow ..... what exactly is your connection to Bareboat ?

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

I like to distinguish between trusted and untrusted sources. Those who join this forum just to complain about a particular charter company or vendor or whatever in my mind are not a trusted source. Nor are the people who join just to defend the particular company. I do not judge the folks on this thread, just sharing my personal practice for deciding what weight to give information I read on the internet.

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

I had a good experience with Barefoot a number of years ago. The owner of the boat we were going to take out blew up one of his transmissions a few days before our arrival. Barefoot put us on a larger, newer boat without change in cost.

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

I chartered from Barefoot a couple years ago and had a wonderful 10 days. The boat was everything I expected, considering its age. I will certainly consider Barefoot for any future charters.

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

A question for you guys that like to create these flame threads...

Do you not have a freakin' camera? I mean, you're on vacation for crying out loud and you can't be bothered to pick up your camera or phone and snap a couple of selfies with that nasty sloshing pot and the diesel spewing around your cabin and a duck-bill sexy mouth on your pouty face?

Prove your case with some pics or go home.

Then just make 10 meaningless posts in one of the junk threads. It's really not that hard.

Re: Barefoot Yacht Charters St. Vincent: Never Again

I'm not out to defend either side. I understand the desire to post negative after a negative experience and then the other side defending. I own a vacation property in the Bahamas. I know all too well, island life is shall we say very laid back, nothing is urgent. A propane tank that hasn't been filled in over a year, empty cistern, burnt out light bulbs, doors that don't lock,.....

The real measure of a good service provider is in their response to problems. The best company will have problems, but it's how they rectify them.

My question to SamSpade since you came to defend yourself is "Did you make a reasonable effort to fix the problems when you were notified, or did you just blow it off?" What about the short drive over the hill? Too much effort? Has the novelty warn off?

"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."
