Not really sure where to post this, read other post and decided to try here... I am very new (never have done it) to the charter business and am looking for information from the experience I have seen on this Forum. If you want to help I really appreciate it.. if you want to scould please just dont comment.. I have an inland oupv for Lake Texoma.. it is a very large lake with alot of individual fishing charters and one charter company. I am planning on using my 4207 Carver for pleasure charter.. mostly "for hire"... my concerns are, what is the best way to set up my operation.. I do not want to have set hours as not to restrict possible clients schedules.. only being allowed 6 passengers I think this would be better. I have considered forming a LLC and having the (Company) lease the vessel. I guess I am just asking for opinions in the best way to go about this.. Also, I have been asked to drive boats for sale and have thought about operating other peoples boats on the Lake as a hired Capt. How do you insure yourself or protect yourself from liability. Do you incorporate yourself or act as a proprietor. Any insight would be appreciated. I have alot of experience on the water, I just have not ever hired out myself or my boat.
