My understanding is no non licenced Captain can take "For Hire" money for any reason.
Non licensed vessel owners can only except "partial" reimbursement for actual costs...Fuel, food.
Im sure some Captain will give you the straight skinny shortly...we have a few here.
Edit: Id be very Leary of the liability issues if i were you.
I have and do donate my buisness for good causes but Im Insured and tret it just like any other job...Im just giving the money away is all.
"Go Simple...Go Large"
Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.
The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
