Generally, boat partnerships are pretty difficult unless the partners know each other pretty well.

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.

Even if the partners know each other well it can still be challenging. Been there, done that, still doing it after 10 years.
However, it all seems worth it once you finally do get out on the water.

Geeez, My wife and I sometimes don't do well on the boat. Hate to see how others do.

One vessel, one master. I don't care if it's a Dufour 40 or an Optimist dinghy.

I don't know how often you folks use your boats, most boats just sit in the water unused most of the time. A partnership seems like an eminently feasible solution to cut the costs of ownership. I have been in a 3-owner partnership of a 25' sailboat for 3 years now and am very happy with the arrangement. Never, even once, have had any contention with use. Partners have come and gone, most were very easy to get along. Problems can be largely avoided by making sure to have a detailed written agreement and thoroughly check prospective partners for compatibility. Every one gets exclusive use of the boat for a week. If you want to go during some other partners' week and the other guy is not using it, you are free to use it with his permission. I get exclusive use during my week, have a pool of sailing partners when I want to go, split costs 3 ways, and have help in various boat projects. Obviously this model has its limitations, it works best with compatible responsible people, moderately priced boats and mostly day-sailing or small trips type usage.
