How to make a charter (feel) affordable

I figured out how to make a bareboat charter feel affordable.

Book a stay at Disneyland directly after.

Ouch.

No, 70 miles from the house. We drove there, no parking fees, and drove home the day we got back in. No food, no marinas, no mooring, no fuel charges (separate)... just the bareboat fee.

Oh yes, I think you posted about the large boat you and your wife chartered out of Sailing Florida. I'd like to check them out sometime.


But as far as costs go....

Your charter at $6,000 / 9 days = $666 / day

Two tickets and a hotel at Disneyland = $900 / day

The mouse is expensive! We're sailing for the first part of our vacation, then going to Disneyland. The sailing is definitely the cheap part!

So if it were BVIs, etc, you would have been down the lot a fair wad of cash.

Not cheap!

You can buy rat traps at Tractor Supply for a few dollars!

Good news: It's stopped raining and got warm again. Bad News: Fog moved in Saturday so it's 85 at Disney and 64 on the ocean and very gray.
