As a practical matter, has anyone ever found a boat sharing partner online? Even a quick look at the various boating blogs, forums and bulletin boards indicates there are a large number of people actively looking for boating partnerships, but has anyone ever found one through one of these avenues?
I see post after post of people tentatively sticking their toe into the boat sharing water hoping it doesn’t get bitten off by the few but extremely vocal old salts who “tried boat sharing” a decade ago and lost their boat, wife, children and toe nails. “Don’t do it!” they say, “It always ends badly.”
All that is about to change. We are at the precipice of a shift in how the boating industry views boat sharing. Why? Because people are increasingly unwilling to let assets go to waste. Leveraging unused and underused assets has become a reality in the modern age. EBay, Amazon and many other sites allow people to capitalize on items they no longer use instead of throwing them away. A myriad of sites allow people to share their cars, planes, houses, etc. It’s time for the boating industry to get on board.
