What type of business are your planning? You mention chartering and rental in your last post. By chartering, do you mean a captained charter or bareboat? Big difference in risk, reward, and liability.
As far as the $35 an hour for a captained charter that is competitive. Most of the charter companies will put a captain on the boat for $150-$250 a day. Dependent on where and when obviously.
Good luck. Most charter companies are financially viable because they manage and maintain other peoples boats. Limits the investment.

Thanks for the information on companies to try!
I'm offering pay of $35 an hour which I think is pretty reasonable for a charter captain. If anyone in the Georgia/Florida boarder area is interested let me know.
Does anyone know where to find out information on pulling up on beaches for national and stage parks in Florida & Georgia?
Last question, I have an option on a 1977 Catalina 27' "Dinette Version" as a second boat. With a jib traveler and some TLC would this be a good boat for charters or rental?

Try Markel American. I have a boat in a charter fleet and the policy through the fleet is with them. I have been very pleased with their response.

|sailingdog||do you have a USCG licensed captain??? you're gonna need one. If you need business insurance, try giving hartge INsurance a call in annapolis. They can probably find something for you. A lot of insurance companies have problems with insuring boats that old for commercial use. YMMV.|

I have searched the message boards for this and not been able to find an answer.
What companies will insure a boat older then 20 years for chartering? I have a business plan, research, marketing plan and am just missing information on insurance.
