My daughter and son-in-law have a lifelong dream of traveling by sailboat when they retire; he has sailed up to 28', but not recently. They have a 25th anniversary coming up, and I'm toying with the idea of springing for a week in Key West
with a sailboat rental thrown in, so they can putter around the Keys and see if their dream is really as great as they think. I know nothing about sailing or renting
a sailboat; who can educate me a little bit on the idea? Can live-aboard
sailboats be rented in the Keys? What kind of licenses or training
certificates are required? In ballpark terms, what would a week's rental cost? Might I find a rental package where they get a day or two of refresher orientation, then are allowed to take off on their own?
