Smile Bylaws Hopeful Club

Out here in Northern Montana some friends are getting a sailing club together. We have two sailboat owners and they would like to time share or rent their boats to other members. With a one time fee and then daily fee, when used. The money will be matched by owners and go to slip fees, repairs, etc.. Problem we're a small group, low budget, set of freinds. We are having a hard time making up a set of bylaws, and agreements, to protect club, owners and boats. Could someone send a copy or link of there bylaws, etc.. to me? Thank You

Tropo-

Unfortunately, doing that is probably going to require them to have USCG licenses and commercial insurance, since they will effectively be chartering the boats.

It would be different if the entire groups set up something like a Tontine agreement or something similar and all of you were CO-OWNERS, but if you're renting or charging a fee to time-share, then you're effectively a commercial enterprise and are subject to the rules and regulations of such.

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.
