In case I get lost
on this site Skip Mac, as for the delivery, I would actually anchor
away from the marina in a few different location throughout my open business hours according to a set schedule and boaters could pick up what they ordered or if they are anchored close by my location at that time, or even on land or at a public dock, I could have their items delivered by small skiff, inflatable
or jet ski so would not really be using much fuel
over all and it keeps me from being dock locked so to speak on a daily basis.
Where do I go from here?
Too late to apologize. I told you that you are marked for life.
Actually, how to start a new thread isn't extremely obvious. I had to do it a couple of times before I could remember the process. Once you see it, the process is simple, just not obvious how to get there.
From any page in the forum go up to the top left of the screen
just under the "Cruisers Forum" logo. Select menu option "Forums" That drops down a list of all the different forum topics. Click on the one that seems appropriate to your question. That will move you to a list of posts under that topic. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see a tiny, little, obscure box to click called "New Topic". Click on that and fill in the blanks on the screen
. Tadaaaaa! A new thread is born.
You could start a new thread or just keep on since you have already violated the sacred rules of the forum. You will just have to buy the OP, Audiguy a case of Dom Perignon to demonstrate how contrite you really are for blatantly stealing his thread. Or he might be a nice guy and just forget the whole thing.
Back to your question. Again, as far as I know, there are no special restrictions, permits or licenses for running a business on a boat or using a boat in a business, as long as you are not carrying passengers. I would be very careful on this as even giving someone a lift
back to their boat might be construed as carrying passengers under the right circumstances.
What kind of items are you planning to deliver? In general I think most boaters will pick up their own boat parts/groceries/mail/beer unless the items are a long way from a boat dock and they have no car locally.
