    • Each boat has a maximum of eight members and they treat the boat as though it was their own
  • 5. What is SailTime and how does it work?
    • They make a reservation turn up and use the boat clean it down and leave
    • Its just like a gym or golf club membership

        • Examples is there water coming out of the engine?
        • Have you briefed your guests on how to use a lifejacket?
        • Is there any noticable damage to the boat
      • Members check off upon departure
        • Is there more than 1/4 tank of fuel?
        • Have you cleaned the boat?
    • This unique interactive system provides real time information to help the base effectively manage the fleet
  • 8. Owner Member program
    • In addition to our Member program we also have an ownership or Owner Member program
    • An Owner member buys a boat and leases it to SailTime for 5 years
    • SailTime takes care of all the operational costs including slip fees, maintenance and insurance
    • The Owner Member sails the boat as a Member a minimum of seven times a month but has no fees
    • After the lease term, the boat is returned to the Owner at which point he can trade it in against a new boat and start again, or keep the boat him/herself
