My take is that if you're willing to crew for free—ie, not get paid for working as crew—the most the captain/owner of the boat can ask of you reasonably is to share costs. A good captain/owner will generally at least feed his crew, since they're not getting paid—which is not an unreasonable cost for the captain/owner IMHO. Food for a single person per day is $10 at most, unless you're going with very expensive foods and beverages.

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.
