Hellosailor has a very good point... if the fees get to the point they're equal to the price of the boat, or more, the marina will just sell the boat off, and may hold you liable for any fees owed above what they recover in the sale of the boat. If you can't afford to get a tourist visa to come over the US and prep the boat and sail it yourself, with or without a hired crew, you're likely to just lose whatever you've paid for the boat very shortly. The chance of someone being dumb enough to want to sail a questionable boat, with questionable paperwork and possible legal entanglements and not be paid is very unlikely.

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.
