Had this sent to me yesterday - pretty interesting.
$64/hr to take two people out for a while and you supply everything. Hmmmm. I would not want to go out where they are showing on the map though, right in the heart of downtown. Too busy and dirty.

Saw this too and have thought about this as well, havnt taken the time to look into insurance but ive talked to a few people who say unless you have a steady client based the insurance alone can sink you.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.

I wouldn't want to worry about unknowns on the boat. I know the crew and how they respect what I provide. last thing in the world I want showing up is the McSlob family making a mess every time you turn around and no expectation to clean up/wipe down afterwards..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

You would need a license to take paying passengers out legally. It's known as "passengers for hire" and you would at least need an Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels (OUPV) license from the Coast Guard. To obtain that license you need 360 days logged sea time, DOT physical, Drug Test, First Aid... basically a bunch of stuff. The course for a OUPV License is usually $500-1200, depending where and who you get that from and is typically a 2 week course. I know this because I have my 100 Ton Master's and have been through it all and then some.
But... this is only if you want to be legal. And I say this because a lot of people get away with doing charter's under the table, but as soon as something happens, i.e. one of those "passengers for hire" gets hurt or what not, your insurance will not cover it and you will probably have legal issues along with it. Anyways, food for thought, hate to see one of you do this and have the worst case senerio happen.2004 Moomba LSV Blue
