Most charter boats are stuck in the same location because that's how you market it and build that client base.

And there's no way I would get chucked out of the biggest cabin on my boat to go sleep in the smallest...

Sent from a stupid phone that replaces words with weird stuff.
Wow, you plan to keep a cabin!?

Ive spent many a night sleeping in the main salon or cockpit on a boat full of charter guests.

Thats also why I finally got out of the charter biz. Although I only did it part-time, it still kept me busier than I wanted to be. I often had weeks between charters/classes, but couldn't stray too far. Shut it down so I could do some real cruising again.
