Letting a friend use my boat for charter -- good idea?
A friend of mine had his Catalina 38 hit by lightening 9 days ago. He was using the boat to run charters and he was making money.
We've been discussing his using my boat until the end of the season. He offered a 50/50 deal, using his website, advertising, etc.
I'm confident in his sailing ability and would like to help him out. And making a few bucks would be good. Yes, I would have to change our insurance. What are the drawbacks to doing this? What do you think?
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
