A friend of mine is just getting ready to launch a commercial charter boat here in Havasu that can run 60’ish people..

I was thinking if there’s enough people coming to DS I could put together a charter where ya jist show up and bring your beer and he takes care of the rest..

To be clear we don’t need 60 people to rent the thing but the cost is 2500-3000 dollars so 50.00 sounds pretty cheap for a fun day.. it’s 55’x14’ and has a bathroom on board..

We could rent it with half the people for double the money per etc..

Was just thinking this might He an option for those stuck without a boat?

or maybe we can rent this thing for a little private rdp booze cruise on Friday? Night? 🤪

I would be in for sure but 60 people on board is too much. Charge twice the price per person with 30 people on board and I am in for me and Anji. I’m boatless and it sounds like fun.

Is that the old BudLight party barge. If so I hope they really disinfected it from all the STD's.

And like others said I would rather pay $100 and limit it to 30 people. I would rather spend $100 then deal with using my boat on Desert Storm weekend, not worth it in my opinion.

We’d be in for a Friday booze cruise. Not sure if the boat will be ready for DS. Gonna be close but we’ll bum a ride from @Jumppack JB if it’s not. ;)

I would be in for this plus a couple people. @Shlbyntro ? It's going to be a very sober weekend for me other than main street and afterparties driving lol.

I have no boat unless one pops up soon. What about the Dixie Bell? They are close to getting their permits to operate. Was just inside it the other day. Full bar, kicker system, etc. would be epic for DS. I just texted the owner to see if avail.

Did they measure the maximum occupancy for normal humans, or RDPeeps and coolers?
Thinking they may have to ditch the seating, that's a whole lot of coolers on deck!

So you are saying RDP folks are generally over weight.

Great idea:
Couple of thoughts:
Absolutely have a small bar with a bartender.
Sell some food ... even if it’s just sandwiches ... but have some food.
Drive around ... drive to different “pick up card” sites ... don’t just bob around all day long ... kinda boring.
Have some portable music ... background enjoyable music not bumping all day.
Have three different drop-off times if someone wants to get off early or pick up late arrivers.
This is really a cool idea ... even for peeps that don’t want to fight the launch ramp !

That'd be a "pot/kettle" thing...

What I may be saying, is some of ya'll can load a boat with enough beer to make it a wake surfer's dream 😂

I have my boat for the weekend but I was thinking maybe a Friday booze cruise kinda deal? I dunno.. sounds like it would be a fun little boat ride..

or possibly an option for everyone that cashed out of their overpriced boats right now.🤪

Uh.. rdp has never chartered a boat?
It wasn't an RDP deal. It was a big group of people from different forums celebrating Christmas. I text you a pic of Grads and I giving you the bird that night if you recall. LOL

Wendi did a lot to put it on two years in a row. She did a great job putting on a fun event.

The damage to the boat sucked, but everyone chipped in to pay for it.
