I am very confused by this. Whenever we have sailed on other people's boats, we have helped pay for fuel
. We have equated it to paying for fuel
when we take road trips across the country; we would need to help the owner of the vehicle pay for fuel
. My fiance took a long trip recently where this was part of the deal and he was crew. We are definitely not interested in ripping anyone off, we just assumed that the way we have been doing it for the last couple years was standard practice.
If this is not standard practice, we may need to reconsider our offer to exclude that request...
