How to Best Find Owner-Time to Charter - BVIs

New here so haven't figured out yet how to search the various forums -- If already covered please direct me there....

Have chartered bareboat in BVI's many times -- have heard about finding owner's weeks to buy, but the on-line sites I can find seem to only have large companies like Moorings listings or have to go through a middle-man-- Any hints as to where to go to find availability directly with the owner?

Ditto on the above link.

I've got a trip in 24 days and we booked through an owner saving a significant amount.

If you are looking to go yet this year on a 32.2, let me know. I have unused time I'd be happy to sell.

The above mentiened site looks good as well.
