Re: Charitable Donation: Sailing?
"A “passenger for hire” means a passenger for whom consideration is contributed as a condition of carriage on the vessel, whether directly or indirectly flowing to the owner, charterer, operator, agent, or any other person having an interest in the vessel."
My take is the regulation requires that the boat be helmed by a licensed Captain. That the OP mentioned "accommodate six people" leads me to believe the OP anticipates the same, i.e. 6-Pack.
Certified...in several regards...
