Recommendations for splitting expenses on charter

We've chartered a few times now but are looking for any wisdom on the best way to split expenses while on the charter. It's obviously easy to split the cost of the boat beforehand since the whole...

Re: Looking for advice on French Polynesia charter

Well noted, thank you. I was indeed expecting that this might be a possibility when going from Bora Bora to Raiatea, or Raiatea to Huahine.

Re: Looking for advice on French Polynesia charter

Haha, sounds good. My wife and I will be diving, but one other couple with us will have the young one that I'm sure will thoroughly enjoy the water and fish.

Re: Looking for advice on French Polynesia charter

Good to hear! We'll have to look more into the Lagoonarium. We didn't go there last year, and we may have a 4yr old with us on this trip, which that seems perfect for.

Re: Looking for advice on French Polynesia charter

Thanks for the tips, fxykty! We're certainly not opposed to weather that requires running generator and A/C overnight to be comfortable. Used to that in TX, ha. My wife and I have been to Bora...

Thanks again for all of the tips! Makes us feel more comfortable with our plans so far.

For the Blue Grotto/Cave, are you saying that you found a mooring ball near the cave entrance and then just...

Re: Bareboat in the Mediterranean

Awesome, appreciate the offer! Those are all places we're considering for Sept 5-12, so I definitely have a few questions if you don't mind.

We are relatively novice bareboat charter sailors. ...

Re: Long term (sabbatical) charter?

I've called 2-3 times and never heard back from the guy in London (I think) who's running the program. Frustrating!

Re: Planning ahead for sailing sabbatical(s)

Thank you both, more great recommendations.

Navigation and VHF/SSB are certainly ones we can work on off the water.

Electrical, plumbing, and refrigeration I think I'm good on. Diesel I...

I just noticed this company lists "small compressors" as part of their rental equipment:

Re: Scuba Compressor Rental?

yeah, that's pretty slow! For a trip to French Polynesia, we were thinking of 8 people on a cat, probably 4-5 divers. Sounds like we need to figure out our stops where they have tank refills for...

Re: Planning ahead for sailing sabbatical(s)

Great story! I think we are a bit more stable in life in general (not trying to really escape anything as the reason for our plans), but glad they have found out how to make it work.

Re: Scuba Compressor Rental?

Ah man, well at least you tried. Crazy that people weren't willing to offer a deposit. I'm definitely willing if someone rents near a place we're going to bareboat charter!

Great advice. Another reason we plan to bareboat many places before moving forward with this is to figure out where we'd like to spend more time (a lot more time). I think Europe for an extended...
