Daniel -

Thanks for the offer, but I've decided the cost of delivery would be prohibitive, particularly when there are literally hundreds of the type I'm looking at right here on the Chesapeake.

tigerregis has a little shameless behaviour in the past
$300 per diem works out to $12.50/ hr. How many of you would be responsible for 100 large and someone else's property AND pay for Liability Insurance and work for this pittance?

So you think he is going to sail straight thru on watch 24hrs. a day for 10 days, even while in port?

He is responsible 24/7 for everything and anything. How much is parking your car in a major metropolis; how much do baby sitters charge these days?

I bet you, if you fly one of my friends there, he will ferry the boat for you for peanuts..

In fact, you might even get someone that goes along just for the ride..what a rip off..

Giu, let me pose one scenario for you. You need your boat in the Canaries and can't make the delivery. Suppose your insurance company requires a licensed captain to be aboard for the delivery. How expensive is $300 per day when it your "baby"? The captain who quoted the delivery fee was VERY reasonable. He has logged over 500,000 ofshore miles, can your say that you have that much water under your keel? I'm a retired captain, only 200 ton Master, but large enough to do what I enjoyed, give the professionals their due and pay them what they are worth. Or, let one of your friends do an open ocean delivery for you, have an incident and have no insurance company to back you up. The insurance companies want professionals aboard, but then again, it's your choice. Just a little food for thought to chew on while you are flying.

Sloop,

here the boat is insured, regardless of who is sailing it. However (a big however) by law (strongly enforced) you can't sail the boat without a licence for the type of travel you're doing. So if the boat is going to the Canaries, the Captain has to have a hi-seas licence certificate, meaning he had to go to sailboat school for 6 months and sit all the Navy required exams, done by the navy. So the insurance company insures the boat, no matter how, and they are pretty good here. If something happens and the captain does not have appropriat licence, he gets fined by the Navy and the insurance company still pays, because the boat is insured. Our insurances are different from yours.

Now, the people I know that do that type of ferry work are guys that sail in the Transpac racing circus, 2 of them have crossed the Atlantic at least 4 times, one is now returning from Macau in a bene he bought last year, and one of them is no othr than the ferry captain for Shipman.

Here, any of them, all as you see very capable, only charge 100 euros a day, and you don't have to buy their food.

I trust my boat to any one of them any time...still $300 a day...rip off....
