In the Whitsundays I yould like to take a bareboat vessel to the GBR however no way even if you have a masters ticket.
No, the usual Moorings kit for 46' & 47' bareboat cats: no radar, only GPS and the typical chart plotter/auto pilot and paper charts.

Re: BVI charters for sailing - Voyage Charters Contract

I havent chartered for a while, but as I remember mine had to be returned by about non. Not 9am. I'd find a different company.

Re: BVI charters for sailing - Voyage Charters Contract

I did have to make a complete inspection of the running and nav lights since they are rarely used by charterers and not high on the base maintenace list. Several were missing or burned out, they were all operable before we left the charter base.

Insurance companies must have drawn their own limits rather than use the Port limits unless those Port limits have changed...

Those were the days. Before WHS. I am sure its insurance related as some get into enough trouble around the Whitsundays let alone the reef. LOL

Agreed, except that I would use a stronger word than "naive." Like, maybe really, really DUMB! They don't put stuff in the contract just for fun.
