good stuff!

keep the feedback coming. I have ports i could leave out of and be looking at 1-1.5 hr crossing and once you get into the water of the Bahamas it is a dream crystal clear water and fishing, diving, snorkling and running flats that are just awesome.

I can't get 200 miles south to go look for tuna, I don't think I'm going to make it 3000 miles. That sure looks nice though.....

Can you get to the windward side for surf in decent amount of time?

Was in NYC last month and did a great site seeing trip on 7m willards, up the Hudson, statue of lib, Brooklyn Bridge a fair bit more! A bit over an hour, all for $85usd. Not bad value I thought! It's not for everyone, but I'd take a rib, over been stuck on a overcrowded giant hard boat any day,! So would most of my mates.

It will be a bit of a niche market or a few niche markets, but if you can accurately identify and target them, I think it could float. Definitely for active adventure seekers rather than the sedentary cruise line buffet crowd.

If you can identify and market yourself to the local business who would receive the maximum benefit from the type of clientele you'd be delivering to them, they might be good sponsors to offset some expenses.

They had recently bought an outboard H733. It was on this site for sale not long ago and painted blue and grey camouflage.
