I think you are assuming that the crew for some reason is not capable or not willing to be responsable for these expenses and then this responsibility will surely fall on the captain. It's not like your being hired to do the passage, this is an opportunity to do the passage and you agree to pay for your fair share of the expenses. I've done this a dozen times and looking forward to many more opportunities. Glad I'm not sailing with you.

I understand the situation only to well.

You are entitled to voluntary do as you do, but it's not mandatory and inexperience crew need to be aware of their rights when dumped in a foreighn land. Their lives could be at risk as well.

Re: Tahiti to New Zealand

Youre going to have to pay me more than 8-10 dollars a day .Cheapskate.
I dont get these guys.They want someone to perform a task that theyre either incapable of doing or unwilling
to do themselves, and theyre to cheap to pay.

Re: Tahiti to New Zealand

1. The 8 - 12 dollars per day is paid by the crew member, not the captain, I believe.
2. This thread is 7 years old.
3. Why would you start name calling? If you don't think it's a good deal then move on. I, for one, would be happy to pay 8 - 12 dollars per day for an incredible experience.

I was replying originally to the poster, as an education, information posting for inexperienced crew.

For the record crew members do not have to post a bond with the authorities in the Pacific Islands of the South Pacific nor does the Captain/Owner for that matter. If a vessel enters a Island nation with crew the vessel must leave with all crew declared on the crew list. If not under their laws the Captain is responsible for all Accomondaton - meals - Transport- airfares, not the crewmember or crewmembers. So don't be sucked in by this person telling incorrect happenings in the Pacific Islands, which is still relevant today.

Sailor 37 replied and I replied to his posting a few days ago.

No body has been name calling with my recent posting.

For further arguments re who, how much should pay
