Guess I'm just too AR to follow P-Girl's lead... therefore, IMHO, letting any person stay aboard our beloved Tolly without us (actually that B - me!) there to make sure all items are going well and correctly simply ain’t a gonna happen - LOL!

That said: For near a year, with all insurance needs affordably covered by a national rental organization, I’ve been seeking to locate the "correct" simple and durable used cruiser (28’ to 33’ +/-) that I could utilize as a rent-a-boat for qualified “customers” to rent and use on a day or weekend basis in SF Bay/Delta. I would have extensive rules, a single person as a “signed - pre qualified” and already knowledgeable pleasure cruiser adaptable “self-rental boat operator”, and a big security deposit. So far no luck finding the correct craft. If/when I do find the correct boat it will be used exclusively as a rental... with others on it sans me!

Happy Holidays to All!! And, of course, Happy Boating Daze!!!

Art there are two ppl we've allowed to stay on our boat. Both if whom own sailboats and "should" be somewhat boat knowledgeable. The two people bring my husband's brother (and his family) and my husband's best friend (and his wife). We let Matt's brother use our ski boat and he did not read the instructions and forgot to put the plug in it!! They got it back on the trailer before TOO much water got in it. I don't sleep well when other people are in my boat. We do NOT let them take it out.

Just because we would have no qualms about blasting an intruder doesn't mean that we're not sensitive.

...at least he's consistent. In both cases, he's just taking it upon himself to protect his own property, and not rely on someone else doing it for him. I gotta admire that!!

Blue Heron, the trick is to blast 'em all before they get on the boat. That way if there's any cleanup to be done it's all on THEIR boat, not my boat. Besides, if they were drinking red wine before they attempted to storm my boat, the stains on their boat would blend right in!

Well…I'm no wine buff, but I'm with you on that Rick. Mind you, my my boat is so full of imperfections, I must admit, a bit of a wine stain somewhere - which has never happened actually - would be the least of my worries. Life is indeed too short...

Peter, talking of wine, people are posting on the "SSB" thread discussing radios! Aussies know SSB is a white wine blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc. I`m happy with a red wine tolerant boat.

Bruce,
You don't want to encourage those frivolous Sauvignon Blanc drinking kiddies on to your boat, give me a good old fashioned big wooded chardy any day.
Glasses are also a must as life is to short to drink cheap wine and or out of plastic.
I keep a spare box of white wine , red wine glasses and champagne flutes on board as replacements for the ones in the ready use rack.
They are Woolies glasses so not expensive and also we actually don't have that many breakages which is surprising considering the amount of that sort of thing that happens on Tidahapah
Anyhow it is that time of day, must of for a drink.
Cheers
Benn
