I do it all the time - but I voted if they brought wine or something. Figure since I always have that when I invite people to my boat - since they are inviting themselves and I agree to it may as well go all AFOC on it...:laugher But, I wouldn't sign up on a site to do it though...
I've given tours before and expect I will again. But only if they seem to be interested folks that make a good first impression and I'm in the mood to be a gracious host. If I'm in the middle of something...probably not. I wouldn't signup for a "Boat Tour" though, did that once with our home for a community "House Tour" and while it was a great success for the charity, 200 people trappsing through sure leave a lot of footprints.
Since my boat is on the hard, 30 miles from the nearest salt water. I wouldn't have thought I would have any unexpected visitors, and I haven't. Except for one. The young fellow was very polite and very inquisitive. As I spoke with him I recognized the same ambitions and desire to be on the sea that captured us so long ago. The time as we spent talking may have been lost to others, but it was I who was enriched.I asked nothing in return, and thanked him for dropping by. A few days later a gift was left under the keel, a large bundle of black walnut. It will make a beautiful accent for our new chart and dining tables. Thank you stranger.
Always happy to let anyone interested have a look when I,v tidied up, tho tour is hardly the term for looking round a 26 ft Centaur.
Often happens when I cruise along the Irish coast and someone sees a different boat in their harbour.
Was even tempted to press gang a fab mum once but the her son was just too boisterous.:laugher
