Night stop in Fort Lauderdale, charter a boat.

Ended my glorious flying career recently and started a small charter gig, taking people out for day cruises, or by the hour, minimum 2 Hours, on a 27 fot pocket yacht in Fort Lauderdale.
Some of my customers have been airline people on vacation, but why not airline crews on night stops, or lay-overs as we say here.
Bring your own booze, beer, wine whatever, got a cooler and a small fridge on the boat to keep it cold.
Max 6 pax, $125 per hour.
See picturesque Fort Lauderdale by canals and river.
Stop at bars and restaurants with free dockage for guests.
Here is the web page:

Well done, TowerDog. On both your retirement and having the get up and go to set up your own business.

I wish you well. I'm sure you'll get a lot of word-of-mouth type business as well as Google searching customers.

Those restaurants look great too.

It's a beautiful area down there. Well for you.

I really liked Fort Lauderdale. Used to stay in hotel that looked like a ship when I was with Lauda Air on the B767. We arrived FL after flying Vienna- Munich- Miami and always went for spicy chicken legs in bar close to hotel.

On one trip I had Niki travelling as passenger and on arrival at Miami the gate we always had to use was the Lufthansa one and their B747 was stuck on it with a problem meaning we had to sit with engines running for at least 30 minutes and Niki was doing his nut thinking of all that fuel it was costing him!

Thx, life is good here but business is slow.
Doing about 1 charter per month, lots of time off to sit in the shade and drink beer

Fort Lauderdale is still good, but getting more crowded. Tall condo buildings going up all over town.

Come and do a river cruise with me, complimentary champagne to PPRuNe'rs.
