Re: "Paying" friends wanting to go on the boat.
They say the first ship to sink is a partnership. However, if you can find that rare partner that splits the bills and you get along with, it seriously reduces cost. Especially on a sailboat, where there are very few variable costs.
If you go this route, this is my strongest advice. The first thing you must agree to and have in writing is how to get out of the partnership. IOW, how to buy out your partner without any fuss or muss, you just follow the previously agreed upon process and its done. No talking about it, no voting on it, no negotiating price, just do this and that and its done.
