@hellosailor, this has been discussed above, but there are some changes after ten years. More boat
owners today accept to lease
their boat through dedicated websites, which provide the needed insurances, verify the renter's abilities and take moderate fees
. Boat swap is not much different, except that you lease
to another confirmed boat owner, from which you can expect similar skills and care as yours - no complete guarantee, but better than a "perfect stranger".
@Pelagic, in CF it would be possible to place a listing in the Boat Classifieds sections, with a "free" prefix and an explicit title. Better than nothing, waiting for improvements in boat swap websites. You could be the first !
