Cost share when bringing your own raft.

Have a Canyon trip coming up. We are doing the door to door with Moenkopi. Nine folks coming. We are renting two 18-foot rafts. An couple is bringing their own 16 footer. My other trips were either all private boats or all rentals. How do people usually figure the cost for the raft rental in that situation? Does the group chip in and help compensate the folks bringing the raft? Do the people bringing their own raft avoid the cost of raft rental? Or does everyone just split?

People bringing their own boat should not have to share in the rental expense. If they are also helping the rest of the group avoid a rental (as in more than just their share of group gear per person, other passenger, etc)) then I say consider giving them a break on some other costs, perhaps other gear rental.

What lhowemt said. Except for sure give them a special discount for use of their boat as that saves rental fees for the group.

If you don't have your own raft why should others have to pay for your rental?

If I went on a trip, and they wanted me to bring my boat and split the boat rental, I'd say screw it. I'm not risking damage of my gear so that everyone else can save some cash So it would stay at home

I think I've got this one figured out for you. It costs $45 a day for renting a fully rigged boat from Moenkopi. For a 16 day trip that's $720. The folks riding in rental boats cover the rental expense and everything else is split.

Besides, are they going to cover your fuel costs to drive your boat down there?

Here is a thought...

You could pretend that all the boats are rented and split the rental fees evenly among the group. Then boat owners that brought thier own boat are payed a rental fee. This keeps the math simple and seems a fair way to evenly distrubute expenses.

We have a GC trip coming up and one person is renting a boat package from Moenkopi. He is paying the costs to rent, not a group exspense IMO. Everyone else is bringing their own boats as well as the balance of group gear.
