Time to Share

I've owned Shiva since she was first commissioned. Loved every minute of the 26 years. I have no intention of getting rid of this boat and she is in top form in every way.

I am not using her enough... and was thinking about offering a *share* to some qualified sailors... of course for some reasonable price.

There are many concerns... but this could be mutually beneficial for both parties.

I could get some money from this asset...
I could get some help with boat projects (though they are few... but you never know)
Boats are happy when they are sailed and Shiva is used as a weekend home too often as of late.
I could get a some new friends.

The *share partner* gets access to a world class yacht tricked out and ready to go without the time and money it takes to get there...(years and a small fortune)
The *share partner* does not have to use the boat full time (though some might want this... but people tend to have other commitments aside from sailing)
The *share partner* gets to learn and participate in ownership without all the responsibilities and hassles.... shared and with a mentor.
The *share partner* gets real value... beats a stripped down charter boat.

Does this idea appeal to anyone out there? Boat is on LIS area but location can move east.

Open to suggestions.

What say you?

Re: Time to Share

Seems the thing to workout is the liaibilty both to the boat and to youself. Have to be protected from the "share partner".

Re: Time to Share

Thanks for the concern and mention of protection and liability. Send in the lawyers to mess things up.... No seriously... this is something which is a concern and needs to be considered. A boat is a dangerous thing!
