If he is charging the crew for their passage, they are technically passengers, not crew. Granted, they are working passengers, but as they have paid the captain, the do not qualify as "crew" in the normal sense. As such, his liability to them is probably somewhat different than if they were paid crew.

He is, in effect, running a charter service using someone else's boat. This may affect the insurance coverage of the boat being moved. Most privately owned boats are covered when being moved by a delivery captain, but are not covered if used in a commercial charter, which this well might be considered.

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.
