Re: Cruising yachts behaving if they're doing us a favour

I like sleeping. I like the knowledge I gain and the pleasure of other sailors company. Therefore,I have crew on occasion. To date they have been friends or friends of friends. No money has changed hands. No one has shown up without contributing to provisions or otherwise contributing to expenses. No one has ever been asked as if I thought they wouldn't some how contribute they would not have been invited in the first place. I suppose if I needed to hire crew in the future the op concerns would not be germaine either. I think if the ops believes he has so much to offer perhaps he should charge for it. I hope he never crews for me.
