"Crowdboating": How much would you charge to rent your MC?

We're moving more and more into this sharing/crowdfunding economy...this site allows you to rent your boat out. What would you charge?

I personally couldn't do it... most people don't show much respect for things that aren't theirs. I have seen 45s being rented for 1000/day up here though. Seems ridiculous.

I don't think I could rent mine out for someone else to take. But for the right price I might include myself as a driver and rent it that way.

Doesn't look like they have too many people signed up yet.

I'd never rent mine out, but this is a great way to rent a boat for other uses. I'd love to be able to travel and check out other places by water, but I hate using the cheesy rental boats that scream "I'm a rental!"

I would not do it, ever. Only people I know and I have seen operate boats, will ever get use of mine. And that has never happened yet...

Agreed, to much risk involved. Maybe if I was captain and just towed them around but people would destroy it like they do rental cars
