HHMMM I don't think you want to mess with this, rental insurance is bad enough. I think you may want to invite friends that will pitch in on expenses if you know what mean

I agree, insurance will make it tough unless you find a steady stream of biz.

The insurance would be killer, friend of the family owns a hotel on Keuka Lake (near Penn Yan). He stopped renting small fishing boats and pontoon boats because of the costs!

10000 dollar security deposit, and 1750 bucks a day rental, would be a deal for a friend, but a boat like yours should go for more money

You Would Need To Also Have A Captins Licence.
The First Licence Would Be A 6 Pack That Will Alow You To Take 6 Paying Custormer's Out For Charter .
And Then You Would Have To Get The Next Licence For More Peaple . I'm Not Shure Put I Think If You Want To Take More Then 6 Paying Custormer's Out The Boat Has To Built To Coats Guard Standerds
But If You Get All That . I Know Down Here In South Florida They Get Up To $ 200+ An Hour Per Person For A Go Fast Boat With A Minimum Of 4 Peaple .
Also You Will Captin The Boat Dont Let Anyone Else Drive It ... It Would Be A Nice Dream Job . Go Out On The Boat And Get Paid Some Good $$$
Good Luck
Mike

It is Wiggler.

I would not go here for the reasons folks indicate, too much risk. But just MHO.

How was New Years? Will not be long before we are back on the lake!
