Did I mention that he is an accomplished chef and can prepare an above average meal in a rough sea?
Ya got my attention right there, I had crew step on the boat and say "I don't know how to cook", I'd already paid his airfare.
"how bout sandwiches? can you cook them?"
"How bout coffee? you drink it you must know how to make it?"
"How bout I teach you, french press, you just need to boil water?"
"nope, I don't know how to cook"
I should have bought him a return ticket but had to leave asap.
