Sharing the sail
Anything that promotes getting more people off the dock is good, and including the kids makes it better. I hope you can find some folks. Just a hint, 4 of the wrong people can make the QE2 small. Find a way to spend a little time with them before, a cookout at a park with each bringing half, it will show each what the other forgot...babysit each others kid....and have a good time

I try to look positive:
When we were younger we chartered Bavaria's 32 or 34 for 6 to 7 people.
The only problem we had was that the fridge could not cool all the beer...
So it can easy be done with two couples and a child or two.
I personally also do not see a problem if they want to share the costs - they will share the boat, so only the charter company is making the profit.
And to me two kids of similar age are good thing as they make company to each other - so they are less bored and less tyring for the parents. Two couples get twice the sailing and half the "child care" cores then a single couple.

I don't believe I received your email, I have checked all my accounts and there is nothing. I contacted you as you seem to have experience artfully combining children and sailing. I aplogize for giving you any other impression or causing you consternation. My interest is not in profit. My desire to find qualified partners is an effort to have redundancy and only to provide safe passage and of course, to share costs and comraderie. Although my expectation is to share costs equally, I may be in position to underwrite the burden of the right person. Admittedly, sailing with kids is not eveyone's vision of joy.

No sarcasm and zings are used here, just more moderately.
As I said previously, I think a B34 is kind of small to be inviting a second couple, much less one with a child aboard to share the boat with you.
Also, Jody points out, you've not posted an itinerary, even a tentative one, or mentioned what costs would be involved..
Also, IMHO you've basically spammed this forum with the three posts, which were essentially the same post, in three different threads... without providing any of the necessary information to make an informed decision.
Does this Bavaria 34 have three cabins or just two? What are your sailing qualifications? The reason I ask this is are you a qualified sailor or are you looking to share the charter because you don't know how to sail the boat well enough and are effectively looking to have the other couple run the boat for you???

You actually emailed me prior to posting the thread starting post and it was on a email address not registered through sailnet on friday (through by business email).
Considering I replied to such email (declining) and asked where you got the contact info to my other email addy (as I know no Peter Perkins) requesting for what is contained in the same post you made here, I beg to wonder if this is not a profit sharing deal.
You didn't win any kudos from me by not responding to my email (I inquired where you got my contact info as I do not know you) and within 24 hours of my reply to you, you do not answer the email but instead you are plastering this all over. I can imagine if you do not extend the courtesy of answering a question when you blindly solicit someone - that you might not be someone to cruise with anyways.
I agree with Sd as well, The B-34 is kinda small for a blanket cruise where you do not even state destinations, itinerary, etc or what the costs are you are expecting to have shared...

SA or SN
I appreciate helpful comments and shared knowledge. I thought you only get extra points for zings and sarcasm on sailing anarchy. Perhaps I am mistaken.

|sailingdog||A 34' Bavaria is a bit of a small boat for more than a single couple IMHO.|

San Juan Islands Charter needs you
We have reserved 34' Bavaria for a week between June 27 and July 4th. We are seeking additional members for this adventure. Trip would be ideal for couple with child or single parent with child. We are very open to ideas....
