I agree if the captain and his crews cordially agree. If I am looking for crews in my boat, I feel uncomfortable not providing the bare essentials for the voyage. I am with the old school.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
