There were times in my boat owning past when I would have at least met the guy and checked out his story, gone for a sail etc. They were the times when friends who'd happily come for a day sailing with me, were incredibly busy and unable to spare a day or 2 when I hauled her for a clean up and bottom paint.
I think we've all had that happen... I checked out your website. When you get your Wind Wanderer, if it at all resembles the pic on your homepage, you let me know and I'll come help clean her up and won't even ask for a day sail! I wish you the best in your sailing endeavors.

Hmmm... thats a good point. On my policy I had my two partners listed as additional insured. It didn't cost me anything extra to add them either (Progressive.) It may be possible to add someone to your policy for a short time so that you're covered in the event that something happens over and above the security deposit.

Check out this sight

Sailing Destinations and Trip Schedule

you can get a Beneteau 311 for 1400 for 4 days. 4 people with food is 100 per day.

how can you go wrong on that, easier that a week or 2 in the yard

Thanks KJ, I've been looking at bareboat charters this morning. It's a very viable option. I found a Bristol 31 for under $1000 for 4 days. Not a bad deal.

Re: Last sail as a single man! Can you help??

I know my insurance wouldn't provide coverage under the original question scenario. I would be risking my boat and a personal lawsuit if the "users" had some issue.

I don't think OP is out of the ballpark in asking - won't suit everyone (and doesn't need to), but he knows that already.

FWIW, although out of area, I would consider it - not so interested in boat work, but would not say no to a go on a Bridesmaid. or 2

Just sayin'

Absolutely. The wealthy western world could use more bartering...

...however bartering usually involves to parties face to face exchanging goods. In this case their is a potential liability associated with the use of the good being bartered.
