I bought the boat from Franco. It was his demo boat he had.

If you or anybody else who reads this is interested in chartering your RIB sometime, let me know. I occasionally get multiple requests for charters for the same week, but I only have one boat. If your interested in chartering let me know, you can contact me from my website at www.rib4charter.com

I'll keep that in mind, if you don't mind me asking... Typical weekend rates?

The daily base rate is around $400 a day for 2007. I typically offer discounts on that rate based on the length of time they charter the boat and how frequently they charter. Usually they charters are for 5-7 days at a time. I also tack on a delivery fee for the boat to get to the site.

Sometimes I just want to go on vacation and I will find charters where somebody needs me to just go down and help out with an event I will just go down and take the boat there my self and they will usually put me up with a place to stay and pay me about half rate. Its kind of like a paid vacation, you can paid to drive your own boat.

Enwulff;

What kind of legal ramifications are there in doing that? USCG Licensed Captain, I assume; does the boat have to be certified or equipped in any special manner?

I only charter the boat out as a bareboat charter. You have to make sure your insruance policy covers this or that the person you are chartering to has coverage. You can get commercial policies that cover this. When I go down to help a sailing team out I am usually going down as a coach boat or support boat and not taking out passengers for hire. If you take out passengers, you need a USCG "six pack" liscense which isn't to difficult to get.

Bareboat charter - so someone else is driving? I'd have to think long and hard about doing that one. Just me, though.

Hardest part about the 6-pack license is documenting time (so I've heard.)

I only charter the boat to people who I know or know of. They are usually there with their own boats that are far more expensive than my RIB and they do a nice job of making sure the boat is taken care of. I have been doing this for 2 year and I haven't run into a problem so far. Often their are professional crew of the big boat owner who operate the boat and they make sure it is put away in top notch condition.
