Re: Leaseshare in Chicago - Thoughts?

I think that the answer is really in how much use you think you will make out of the trailer sailer. That will depend on your and your families patience and how easy or hard the boat is to rig.

After taking some ASA courses I did a program similar to a time share at the charter company/ ASA providor. I think I gave them $1800 ( in 2003) up front for the year and for that I got a series of 4 hour sessions on boats 27' to 35'.I tnink it averaged about $150 a session. I could combine the sessions for a full day or overnight if the boat was available, but all of that was contingent on the boats availability. Charters took priority over my program.

All in all it worked for us, I got to sail a bunch of different boats, and ended up buying a boat the following year.

Bottom line: you need to know yourself and your family and go from there. Certainly a $2,000 investment on a bigger boat will be cheaper than buying a trailer sailer if you find out after the first year that the family does not like it.
