Not much of a jump... his OP says: "Crew would be expected to watchkeep, take turns at cooking, boat maintenance and would be expected to contribute."

Basically, you're paying for the privilege of working your backside off... While I don't mind watchkeeping or cooking, as those are part and parcel of crewing on a delivery, and even doing minor boat maintenance might be acceptable—but again it shouldn't be part of delivering a boat—which is moving it from Point A to Point B. What I do mind is paying to do so. That just sticks in my craw. Now, if the delivery captain were say, Nick Scandone (RIP) or Dennis Conner...then things are a bit different.

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.
