Indeed you can. Indeed you did. It won't make you many friends though.

I suggest you chill out slightly, and get to know these forums a bit better.

thanks
very, if you're a twat, even harder if you're a twat with one shagged out boat. Depending on the seating configuration of your OD, you'll be limiting yourself with the kinds of charter you can do I would imagine.

Depends what you've invested in the first place. The maths are fairly simple - get one boat running for 100 days per year at say 400 per day + fuel and you'll t/over 40k, 50 days it'll be half that. My gut feel is you'll struggle to get 50 days in year 1, but depends how effective your marketing and networking is. It also makes a huge difference on whether you're paying a skipper or doing it yourself.

Between 50 and 75 per boat.

Insurance - 500 per boat
Berthing - 3,000 per boat
Maintenance - 1500 per boat (inc safety kit yearly checks)
