You Will NEVER Believe This!

Well, guys... we are expecting a kid. So... I am not going to be able to continue with our charter business. For this reason, we are selling the boat, the business, the website and all rights.

Check out this link to our site:

And check out this link to a sample of some of the PR and marketing work I've done: (see story on "Alternative digs") This is airing on NY1 today and for the next couple days.

This business is for sale now. We are doing $3000/wk in revenue with very little overhead. It would be a GREAT opportunity for someone who is retiring and wants to charter. Contact me through bnbonthewater if you would like to discuss a possible purchase. I'm not looking for a ton of money here... just a fair price for a small hobby business with a solid bottom line.

Includes newly refit boat, website, all marketing and PR, etc... etc...

It's a turn key charter business!

So glad I'm not the only one in forum expecting a Kid now!!!

So what was it that clued you in? The admiral had more seasickness than expected?

Congrads Sean, Welcome to the change of life style. The first time you walk into a Babies R Us Store try not to hyperventilate with all the stuff for sale! And no you don't need it all, but your going to wind up with most of it anyways!

Getting closer to leaving every day!

my wife and I have been trying for 6 years to get pregnant(and trying...and trying...and trying). we finally gave up and bought a cruising boat instead. of course, murphy's law says that now she will get pregnant. good luck, i hate to see you give up the charter business.

At least you had a chance to try that life so in the future when kid(s) have grown and left you will know if you want to try again!

Many congratulations

My kids are now in their 30s but I think if I could raise them now with the world and public schools as they are I would try figure out a way to home school and raise them on a board.
