Depending what charter company you're booked with, you will be able to get a "real" showeer at the base some better than others...

Who are you chartering with? Like Herve said, many of the charter bases have showers on site for exactly your purpose. You might also find that unloading the boat after charter can be a fairly sweaty affair.

thanks for the info. it does sound silly but as you might have guessed, we're newbies. 6 old farts on a '41 beneteau from sunsail april 8 and can't wait. we thought about one hotel room for boat return day but if sunsail has facilities, we'll use em.

Sunsail has showers to the left of the building... pretty nice ones..you may also want to use the fresh water pool next to the bar.

See if you can request Julian to be your boat briefer...he is the best...please tip if you're satisfy.

I didn't think you were allowed to tip the boat breifer!! The Moorings discourages tipping individual staff, instructs you to leave a general tip to be divided. Anyone know more about this? I don't like the general tip idea at all!!

Being an owner I did not need briefing but I made friends with a good number of the Sunsail staff and I can tell you that a tip is greatly appreciated if you are satisfy with the level of attention and details you are given.....
It might also get you a few extras freebies should you require them...(like ice for example) and quick response when you discover AFTER the briefing that you don't know what the red switch under the settee is for..or need a few towels...etc...

Kinda....

On most well found cats it opens a trap door and dumps whomever is sitting at that stop....great way to gt rid of the crew from hell, or your mother in law....The coast guard regulations require being 3 miles offshore before activating.....
