Re: Need some Sailnet HELP and Love!!!..

Agree with the points that you are not going to find a boat capable of taking 20-30 people at once. I'm sure it would violate USCG rules, even if someone wanted to cram you all aboard. Who even has that many PFDs?

Unless the skipper is a licensed Captain and well above a six-pack Captain for your purpose, they can't accept payment for the trip. The boat would probably require some sort of license as well.

I will bet you could find someone willing to take three or four of you for nothing.

Thanks for reading and commenting everyone.
Check out Aventura Sailing out of Dana Point. I make the drive from SD county to sail out of there. I don't belong but have reciprocal priviledges there. Cool club, nice boats great prices, worth the investment.

Re: Need some Sailnet HELP and Love!!!..

You're really asking for too much. You'd need either one 70 foot boat or five or six 30 foot boats.

If you were in my area (and the date wasn't in November) I might volunteer to take out the bride, groom, best man and maid of honor. I doubt anyone would offer much more than that.

Just my opinion; never hurts to ask, I guess.

Good luck,

Ken

If I understand correctly, you want your licensed captain friend to operate the boat, not the owner?

Best of luck.
In no way do we expect someone with a large sailboat to hand over the keys, just wanted them to know that we have some experience to help out aboard while out sailing, unless they feel comfortable letting us go, but I personally would like the owner to come along so he can enjoy our company and so there are no worries on his/her boat.

Also we know this is alot of people, and that can always change, I am open to suggestions and advice as well, I'm currently looking into other options like the marinas but have pretty much done most of the work on that. It is possible but with a membership, large fees, and classes, it's hard to justify for 1day.

Thanks for reading and commenting everyone.

"The lawyer who sails, or at least tries to!" That will be my new slogan!

God willing to my beautiful Fiance Cara...With that said we'd be part of a group of about 20-30 people and are wondering if there is anyone out there who would be willing to for a nominal fee extend their sailboat for a leisurely half day sail.
It would be more impressive if each one of you went out on a separate sailboat...after some synchronized sailing to the wedding music, the groom's boat would T-bone the bride's boat, thus symbolizing the wedding night...the bride would then sink the groom's boat with a small cannon, thus symbolizing the likely course of the marriage...and all the family members and friends would flounder around trying to save them from sinking, thus symbolizing the trial separation, until the lawyers sail in with the judge for the divorce, under a final display of fireworks and more cannon fire!

Then everyone can go home, wet, exhausted and happy! Sailboat repairs to commence following the honeymoon...

Re: Need some Sailnet HELP and Love!!!..

That is a lot of people for a personal boat. You probably have looked, but there are several companies where you can charter boats from:
Marina Sailing Newport Beach - The Fleet
Adagio Yacht | Admiral Yacht Charters, Newport Beach, CA Boat Rentals
Newport Cruises - Electra Yacht

And there are several others.

Best wishes on your upcoming wedding!
