Houseboat Timeshares - pros cons of should we time share house boats?

Houseboat Timeshares- is time sharing of house boats viable?
Looking at houseboat timeshares, is the time share of houseboats a good idea? The reason being, I have a 57 foot Carri Craft in pretty good condition. I do however, want to make some upgrades, and eventually will put new engines in.
I was wondering what kind of problems there would be to setting up a temporary timeshare of assorted amounts of time for investment considerations.
I know there are hundreds of people wanting to cruise or vacation in the Florida Keys and other sites along the coast. I have three cabins and could do it as a crewed or a bareboat type of timeshare.
This is just a thought and I was wanting some suggestions or insight as to advantages or disadvantages to this sort of idea. Money is short everywhere and buying a boat is getting way out there.
I already have a boat but have financial needs to do the upgrades, as I would like to be able to cruise long range along the U.S.A. coastline.
A few investors would be a good thing on both sides. I maintain the boat and you help with finances to an agreed amount for specific time usages. I know I could be opening a can of worms here but, then again, I always did like fishing.
Anyhow, let's see where this goes. Russell. Reply - Answer
Well Russell, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the potential of doing houseboat timeshares. As you said, it may open up a can of worms, however, you will get to see both sides of the equation, and from a different perspective.
As you said, with the price of cruising houseboats constantly climbing, this may very well be an excellent opportunity for both parties to benefit from a wise, and sound investment. As usual, we'll see what others have to say.
In the meantime, for folks who aren't familiar with the concept, here's a good articles on the differences between Houseboat Rentals vs Shared Ownership Houseboat Timeshares.Lastly
