Renting a Trawler - Resources
Wife & I are looking to rent a trawler 32 - 45ft for a week. This is a test to determine if we would enjoy a purchase to do the great loop. "I" have 50 years of power/sailing experience on both coasts, including the north Pacific so I know hardship sailing - although I was then a young man. This is more of a test to see if she would really enjoy the experience.
The boat handling skills are not that big of an issue as we owned an 28 ft express cruiser for 10 years in the Calif Delta (easy water). Have also rented many week long houseboat gigs on Nor Cal big lakes.(really easy water)
We just want to test the experience to see how much we enjoy activity as we love to travel, and do it well together.
We have attended an AGLCA intro event in Annapolis and see that as a great adventure. Just want to be cautious before shelling our for another big boat purchase and then discover it's not going to fit expectations.
Looking to rent for a week or so, from a source location between FLA up to the Chesapeake.
Can you share ideas on who to contact to rent a boat?
