Recommendation for mid-Chessy charter co.
I hope to be joining some friends on a weekend cruise that we have been doing for a few years now. My friends boat is only 32' so we are looking into chartering another sailboat in the <= 30' range so we might accommodate up to 8 people in total.
Does anyone have any experience with the South River outfit? Sailboat and Power boat rentals and charters in Annapolis, Maryland - Chesapeake Bay

Any experience with this one in Annapolis? Annapolis Bay Charters :: Charters

Other recommendations in the mid-Chessy area east or western shore?

We are looking for cheaper (and likely older) boats that are still functional (NO: A/C, power windlass, power winches etc.).

My take on Annapolis Bay Charters - good people, they work hard and they have a range of older boats as you indicated you are interested in. The bad is that they do not screen their charterers very thoroughly. As a result, the boats are used by inexperienced people, and can be abused. So a number of little things may not be pristine when you get the boat, or may have been quick-repaired and not quite right.

I have used Haven Charters in the past - when under different ownership. A bit less expensive than others at that time, and somewhat older boats, but generally decent. It is in a pretty good location on Swan Creek. You do have to sail (or motor) from the mouth of Swan Creek a good ways due south before you can cut west into the Bay, due to a shallow shoal. That is not an impediment if you are heading toward Annapolis or St Michaels.
