Re: Charter with disastrous Outcome
Obviously you can pay someone $X and they will rent you a boat... the question I posed was this a charter business and do charter businesses charter for offshore crossings and races?
Not sure of any currently doing it, but there have been some races specifically designed for this. I think the Sir Robin Knox-Johnston's Clipper race was set up like that, they built all boats to be the same, and you chartered the boats from them to participate.
But this situation will certainly make any charter companies think twice. I have also heard that people will charter boats to race locally especially in the Caribbean.

Project boat, lots of work to be done!
