I hired a professional crew - Chesapeake to Fajardo PR last year after I lost my volunteer crew because of boat and then scheduling problems. Capatain and mate - $500/day + transportation and meals, etc. Bottom line - although they were employed by ( an unamed ) national company - I would not have trusted them with my boat without me and my wife aboard. They were inexperience in sailing a boat my size and complexity and probably would have tried to motor most of the way ( and run out of fuel after 5 days).

They were warm bodies and took more than their shra of watch time but they should have paid us for the experience they gained on the seven day trip!
