Re: Who pays for the food and beer?

Varies a lot from boat to boat and region to region. I grew up with all food and drink provided by the boat. More recently I've seen a shift to boat buying the drinks and crew bring their own food. It really does depend.

If you are feeding crew you should be getting good crew who are loyal and show up regularly. Help cleaning the boat, hauling sails from storage, Spring prep and Fall lay-up are all reasonable to expect. It's a relationship.

You can save a bit if your wife makes the sandwiches at home. *grin*

sail fast and eat well, dave
