So, Eric... I can clearly read between the subject title and the body that the man wants to rent a boat; further, he is clear that he holds the captain's license necessary to operate a boat in Singapore waters.

Are you having a problem comprehending this? A captain's license is required in Singapore to operate virtually any craft. He wants to know if people rent the same.

PS: What is a "tuk boy"? Sounds denigrating to me... but since I don't know what it is, perhaps you will inform me.

replace "the need for a clearer definition" with "a wish for a complete sentence", no more, no less.

Having "Chartered" yachts many times before in the UK, I do have to concur slightly with Eric that alot more info is required before reponding e.g

1, I'm assuming you are looking for "beach resorts" in Singapore?
2, Are you looking to Charter a Yacht or Motor Cruiser?
3, What lenght of charter are you looking for? Therefore number of berths required?

From my reading of the OP, I'd say he just wants to rent a speedboat for terrorizing the swimmers, wakeboarding, skiing, etc. His mode of posting just doesn't seem like the motor cruiser type. Not sure where he is from though. What with his spelling of License.

If he would want a motor cruiser he should go the the Singapore Yacht Club where this is possible albiet expensive. With his rather rudimentary english I would say he probably only has a single engine license as well. Twin Engines yachts are much more easy to dock but I doubt that he's looking for a moored party location.

Yes... sentences are a good thing... as Saint noted, more info is needed. Just don't know if the fellow has English as a second language or is another lazy SMS'er. I give him the benefit of the doubt.

PS: Had a good day... every day that I wake up not dead is a good day.
