Good luck with this... boat partnerships are pretty complicated and can be problematic, especially if you get the wrong partner. Personally, I wouldn't recommend it.

boat partnership

Thank you Saildog. I saw your comments from an earlier posting.

We have a very successful partnership on our boat here, and understand the advantages and limitations. It is an approach we are thinking about for the other side of the continent.

I would not do this. My choice. :eek:

I have known friends that have done "Time Share" Condos, Boats, Businesses, Camping Cabins and even a Thoroughbred Race Horse. It seldom works well. :(

What I would do in this situation, and I not say it the Best idea. But, maybe just Rent/Charter a boat when you want???? :confused:

But, from what I have seen, I would just buy my boat outright and no one else have a say about what the boat do. ;)

This my opinion. I not want to see anyone get into a bad deal with something that needs to be fun, Fun, FUN!!!! :D

$40K will get you the exact partnership that you paid for.

Translation? Find another tack. Or check into a long seasonal lease/rental deal with one of the charter companies........

Good luck

Pikake - Seems you have a leg up on the whole partnership idea with a successful one under your belt. Yes, it can happen, and be a happy "marriage". You're living proof. But you're also one of very few people I've ever heard say it works. So I guess if anyone can make it happen in a good way, you can! Good luck finding the right person(s).

Personally, I could never share my woman with another boat. I mean, my boat with another woman. I mean, oh well, nevermind... :eek:

The divorce rate here is pushing 60 percent. But still better odds than the Lotto..............:cool:
