Fair price charter required

Hi
Bareboat Charter

With my boat now sold and some of the season still ahead I am after some suggestions as 'to whom to charter a RIB from'.

weekend oct 7th/8th Solent or near solent start.

Any bad experiences - anyone to avoid would be good info. Even if you feel you want to PM it to me.

Does anyone charter on the NW coast anywhere from Pwllheli to Whitehaven in Cumbria?

Thanks in advance

ps. And for those who are already asking - yes a new boat is being planned for next year. subject to wifey sign off!
Paul

There aren't many boats around for bareboat charter. Bareboat is a hassle because the people using the boat don't have as much care for it, so things happen more often. Chipped prop's, punctured tubes, scratches to gel coat, damaged seats etc... everytime its damaged, it has to be repaired straight away so it can be ready for the next customer.

However, saying all that - some people still do it...

A few here..

I wanted some additional inspiration, after spending days, weeks sanding and preparing my new rib, I went to Solent Hire based out of chichester harbour, the gent there cut me a deal for a days charter, i was quite impressed with both the boats and setup!!
