Canuck, have you been following us around? We're down in Sun City West right now for about 3 weeks, coming down from our home in SE WA. We have a 13' Boston Whaler that we keep down here to take care of our boating fix.

I've chartered 2 times in the PNW. The first was a 32' Grand Banks and I had to take a "driver's training" course to prove I could handle the boat. The second was a 45' Bayliner from the same owner. He already knew me so no driving test was needed.

Taking a charter with a captain will cost you more but you will have a week or so to learn how to handle a boat. We didn't do that because we wanted to be on the boat by ourselves. (HEY, it was my honeymoon, what can I say???) The second charter was with another couple. We had the boat for 8 days and had a great time.

Enjoy your time in SC. The days are beautiful and the weather is only going to get better.
