Re: Cruising yachts behaving if they're doing us a favour
This is not a true statement
see 46 US Code (USC) 2101, 46 Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR) 175.400
or click on this link at look at the right hand panel under "Consideration." I am so tired of this conversation, can we only share fact when we are trying to guide others? Is that too much to ask? Yes, maybe I am being rude but I would rather be rude than follow someone's wrong advice.
Some people cannot get into their heads that's its perfectly fine to get gas, expense money from riders. I took a guy in my boat whose powersteering hose blew out on his boat to Rio Vista to get parts and back, he gave me gas money. Did that mean I was chartering my boat or? No, I don't think so I think he was just making restitution for my expense of helping him.
