A good delivery captain is a good "leader" with excellent seamanship. He should know how to work with the owner and his wife to their satisfaction. After all, the owner is his client. Customer is always right. The trick is how to make them feel like they are having their way, but in fact you are running the boat.
To OP, you should be able to find the captain that fits your need. But no rum until the boat is secured at the dock and not going anywhere for the nite. LOL.
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.
