Re: Pissed off crew

Capta, I never got a response from him explaining why the early departure or if he would be sailing short handed. So if something doesn't ring true it could be the missing details that I can't provide. I do know this: this is an annual trip for the owner. He and crew sail down and his wife meets him there and they spend a week. The day after she leaves, by plane, he departs so long as the weather allows. The last time I crewed for him we were delayed three days by tropical storm Curtis (I think that was the name) and i was fine with that. I knew to allow for a delayed departure and planned accordingly. So it was this habit of departing after his vacation with his wife was over that lead me to believe that an early departure was unlikely. Along with the fact that I informed him of my arrival date and he made no mention of a possible early departure. I actually think he forgot about me and wasn't even going to let me know of the change. I can only measure people by how I would respond to something. I know I likely would have contributed to the ticket cost and definitely would have given an explanation and apology.

In any event, if I volunteer again I will ask up front about the possibility of an early departure. Lesson learned.

Re: Pissed off crew

This is simple:

The Owner requested, and the Crew agreed, to crew. The Crew was known to the Owner and so now they both knowledgably agreed. The Owner was aware of the costs. There was a meeting of the minds as well as an email trail.

The crew upheld his end of the agreement. The owner, who was implicitly providing a service, did not.

Conclusion: The Owner is A$$$$ho.
