I was under the impression that you need
to have some sort of certification for a charter
company to let you bareboat
charter a boat
The specific experience that I mentioned before where the ASA certification wasn't honored, was not even for chartering a boat
for cruising, but rather for short regattas run by that same company.
How about internationally, do you know if chartering overseas has more stringent certification rules. If so, which of the two certifications is more widely accepted?
