Thumbs up OFFSHORE THRILL RIDES

being that my boat is costing me money and not making me money i have considered getting my six pack license (USCG)and chartering my boat, up to 6 passengers part time. i have been on a few of these boats and its a great deal for the passengers and for the boat owner(if nothing major breaks) any insight, success/horror stories, or advice??? thanks!!!

I think insurance for something like that would kill ya if youre doing it on a small time scale.

you figure at 100 bucks a head for 1hr, thats $500 , maybe $75 in gas. do a few runs on saturday, a couple during the week, it all adds up. a friend of mine owns the THRILLER on Paradise Island,Bahamas but he is on a very large scale taking up to 40 passengers!

The Bull,
Goto: www.BenHedrick.com and click on the link, "Hot Boat Adventures". This is a friend of mine, who is based out of Cape Coral. He might be able to give you some more formation. His name is Phil McCombs.

Good luck.
