Brak-

I would also run this by your insurance company. I seriously doubt they'd be happy about a delivery captain singlehanding your boat the distances involved. If that's the case, the delivery captain may need to have their own insurance for doing the delivery. At the rates you can pay, I doubt it would even pay for the insurance costs, much less pay the captain and crew for their time.

Anyway, I see your point - but such is life. If I could pay $50/hr to those guys - I would. In fact, if I somehow end up getting a tax refund rather than owing Uncle Sam this year - I'll spend it on the most expensive captain, with a salty beard, a blue blazer, a parrot on his shoulder, smoking a pipe and all that, and cover his daily restaurant tab including a bunch of bloody maries or apple martinis - whatever he likes

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
