Hitia, Smaller tiki, wayfarer or amastasi to borrow/rent in the US for camp cruise test?


My wife and I were in the market for a small wharram-- we currently camp cruise in a skerry and a GP 14...

We won't be building or buying until we settle down back in VT which wont be for another year or two, so we thought about chartering in the meantime. Sadly, I can't seem to find any camp/cruise charter operations in the US. There is one in the Bahamas that rents sea pearls, and an operation in Thailand that does their own, modified version of a Hitia, however with limited vacation time and finances we hope to find something local. Is there anyone who has a small Wharram around who might let us borrow or informally rent it for a week to do some camp cruising during the last week of February? We can provide our own tent and gear.

We are looking for a friendly, informal arrangement.  I that we live in a litigation happy environment so I'm happy to sign a waiver or whatever. Similarly, we would agree to take great care of your boat and cover any damages.

Our ideal would be the Florida keys or somewhere similar or maybe the west coast... We are currently in Michigan. That said, we can tow if need be. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any ideas regarding rental operations I might have missed or if you have a boat that would be good for camp cruising.
