Maybe an interesting point for any that haven't paid to have their boat delivered. You might think that when delivering a sailboat, they would be inclined to sail. Nope. If the delivery crew can motor (ie enough access to fuel), they will. Maybe motor-sail at best. Unless, of course, you pay them by the day with no limit.

I've always paid a fixed delivery price for the number of days it should take, with a reduced rate add-on for any weather/mechanical downtime. Motor on and you pay for the fuel too.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
