Update on Charter contract

Well, I have searched the Net carefully, and it seems that this clause (Point of return reached in 1/3 of the charter period) is indeed a standard one at least in this area of Greece (Saronic Gulf). Every contract form I was able to find on line from charter companies in that region have this clause.
Just want to let people who are planning to charter boat in Greece know that they have to plan accordingly. Not sure how enforceable this clause is in the best case scenario, but it seems to be tided up with the boat insurance. So if you break that clause and something happens with the boat, the boat insurance is void and everything is on your dime. That can be an expensive proposition

You reminded me of my favorite law school professor who would cross out the disclaimers on the back of his airline tickets, knowing that the ticketing clerk would not look or care what he did. He said that something to argue in court is better than than nothing to go in with.

It's my happy pill

That's an interesting point. I'm wondering if there's a rider I can get through BoatUS for charter coverage.

If offered I imagine it would have a lot to do with where you're chartering.
