Hi Paul - are you still having this issue after the release of the new site - the new system should take care of this.
Hi Joe - are you still having this issue after the release of the new site - the new system should take care of this.
This is probably going to be different depending on which state you're in. For my state, Texas, here is what the comptroller has to say:

"Boat and Boat Motor Sales and Use Tax
The boat and boat motor sales and use tax applies to the purchase of a boat that is 65 feet or less in length measured from the tip of the bow in a straight line to the stern.

This includes:

jet skis and other motorized personal watercraft
Boat motors subject to boat and boat motor sales and use tax include:

outboard motors (gasoline or diesel)
electric motors attached to a boat subject to boat tax and sold with the boat for one price, such as trolling motors
The boat and boat motor sales and use tax rate is 6.25 percent. The tax is based on the sale price less any allowance for the trade-in of another boat or boat motor.

Permitted dealers collect the tax at the time of sale and remit it to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. If the seller does not collect the tax, the buyer must pay the tax when obtaining the boat’s title and registration from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department or participating County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office."

There are two sample agreements on the Nautical Monkey site - once you log in, they are on the upper right.

You might also take a look at this blog post - it discusses some of the issues you should consider when entering into a boat sharing partnership.

This should be fixed with the new site release - let me know if it's not working.
Tim uses the white label, business version, of the Nautical Monkey Scheduler to manage all his member boats for In this video he walks us through some of the intricacies of how and why he uses it. 
Hi David - sounds like a wonderful opportunity. Even though you'll both be on the title of the boat, you should still have a solid agreement in place as to what happens if one of the parties wants to leave, how the boat can be used, who is responsible for what, etc. Basically the same kind of agreement you would have if you were not on the title - plan for the worst and hope for the best. There are a couple of agreements on the home page of Nautical Monkey after logging in (you can set up a free account in just a few seconds) which you can look at and modify to fit your particular needs - let me know if you have any other questions - John
Hi Greg - I've set up a site for you to play with under your existing Nautical Monkey login - with the Biz sites, you can access all the boats and members either through  or directly from the Biz site URL.

You can add multiple boats in the system now and then include them under this Biz site by clicking on the Edit button next to the Biz site label listed there.

I extended out the expiration until 5/1/2018 to give you a chance to experiment a little.

I've put it under a sub domain of so you can play with it - should you wish to proceed I can let you know what you'll need to do to use your own domain - really it's just a DNS change on your end - and, we'll need an SSL certificate for that domain because the whole site runs under SSL.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Ted - looks like we have a bug with out Find a Boat profile matching up with the main profile - your profiles are actually showing on the site -  - but it looks like you have two profiles there and neither one of them are linked to your main profile - I'll dig into that and get back with you.

Looks like you fixed your avatar - not sure what that was - but could have been that the file was not turned in the original file, but just in whatever software you are using - so when you uploaded, it took the original orientation. Basically, we don't do anything to the pics that get uploaded - just upload and show what we get.

As far as the Greek text - was that on the fine a partner section or somewhere else.

I'll circle back on the profiles linking - and thanks for using the site.
When people initially sign up for Nautical Monkey, we put a "test" boat in for them to make it easier to play around and test the system. Sometimes people get confused between the test boat and a real boat that they have been invited to.

In this case, he hadn't actually accepted your request - I manually accepted for him - so should show up as a "member" now on your side.

I also deleted his test boat so he won't be confused between that and the real thing.
