gfsharkbait is on a distinguished road
Jim - I have to agree with "Really?". When I was building sea time for my master license I crewed many times for free, going up and down the East coast to gain the experience and offshore sea time necessary to obtain the license. Now that I have it, I feel the time and effort involved merits some compensation and travel expenses for my efforts, knowledge and the responsibility involved with a safe and uneventful boat delivery. I'm assuming your not doing it for free - why wouldn't you insist that the boat owners do the right thing pay for the better experienced crew to take his or her boat offshore? You'd only be helping to better the delivery business in the long run.
