Captains License Downside
A comment in another thread reminded me of this question that I had wanted to ask for some time.
Does someones legal liability change if that person has a captains licence (6 pack, 100 ton etc) vs. someone who does not have that licence.
Lets say I get my 6 pack and am not being paid in any of the following situations:
Go out for an afternoon on a friends boad and the boat hits a reef and someone drowns.
I was not driving?
