Re: Crew, Captain and Owner Feedback

Jones Act does not apply to a recreational boater who finds a volunteer to sail with him and when not engaged in a commercial activity. My words of advice about contracts was only intended as advice to those of us who are just doing this for fun. In addition, no contract that you might sign with crew would likely change that crew's rights, if he had any, under the Jones Act.

Been sailing all day with Dad, and I need a drink?
