Boat Owner Survey
This guy has been doing it for years. Sign up with Hank and if you can stand a watch by yourself you can help people move their boats.
You will not get paid and will have to pay for your own land transportation unless it is last minute.
After Hank gets to know you and if you have a captains license you can be recommended to move a boat as the skipper and get paid. You have to get known however as their are lots and lots of guys with a lot of experience that do that kind of work.
It pays from 2 to 4 hundred per day plus expenses depending on the gig.
It is not as much fun as you would think. About two weeks ago I helped a guy move his boat from Mystic to Norfolk, took 62 hours, we motored about 35 hours. One guy dropped out so it was just the two of us. We did 3 hours on 3 hours off.
When you are doing a boat move it is not usually a fun sail, you usually have a deadline and have to push the weather, motor a lot and beat into wind if that is what is needed.
This last move I did was better than most because the guy really knew the boat. When you are moving a strange boat that adds another unpleasant factor.
I still do it though for the miles. I learn something every time. I figure the more I learn on someone elses boat the cheaper it will be for my insurance company both marine and life.
