Offering an opportunity for people to share my lifestyle and sail can be call CHARTER if you like. They don't care what they or anyone else calls it they are happy to pay for the privilege
As to SSB it is merely a suggestion and having involved myself in many other friendly informative scheds why not continue this activity for safty purposes
I have done research
and have used google
and found nothing to answer my question so thats why I posted
Please don't reply unless you have anything constructive to add, thanks
How do think you affect the charter boats in the various places you are making money
. I'm talking about the legitimate operators whose vessels are subject to survey
and stringent manning requirements as well as business costs, taxation etc? You are operating illegally and undercutting them. Do you declare to customs
and immigration in the ports
you visit that you are carrying fare paying passengers, because the prices you are charging
are well beyond legitimate cost sharing and can only (by your own admisssion) be called charter.
I make an honest living servicing boats in the South Pacific
and get tired of "cruising yachts" coming in and taking food
out of the local's mouths.
