Paid crew - what's reasonable to expect?

Have some paid crewing opportunities possible, but I have no idea how much to charge and/or expect. Anyone have any guidelines?

SD has been pretty nice this weekend on the threads I've seen.

PB I'll make an assumption that you asking about compensation for being a crew member for a delivery. With that assumption in mind, most of the guys I've met that do a few deliveries a year, are paid $150/day plus expenses.

If you are talking about racing crew, then it could be anything from a sandwhich and water, to $100s of thousands to skipper a successful vessel.

Private owner, wanting crew to Vero Beach from New Bern. Offshore as much as weather permits. Would be myself and owner.

No wonder he thought $25 a day was reasonable. (I hate it when I have to give an answer without necessary research)

Good part is, he has a Tartan 31 in Florida, he may want me to bring back up here for him (my return trip). Guess I'll have to make up some on that if it happens.

Thanks for the info guys.

PBz-

At $25 per day, you're getting paid about $1.04 per hour... granted you'll be sleeping for part of that time....but still.... I think you underpriced yourself.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

PB if this guy is a friend of yours it is your call. But it is hard to even buy your own provisions for $25.

some delivery Captains charge by the milage and the number of crew required to be on board. Others charge by a flat rate per day plus expenses.
And if it was me, As a paid captain it is $275 or more a day depending on the vessel size. But then I do have the license and the experience.

Captain + mate should be about 300-350/day + transportation and meals.

No, he's not a friend. $25 a day was the least I would take, so that's the price I gave him, not having any gauge to go by. When I talk to him tomorrow, I'll bring up an upfront "expenses" payment. And hope he wants me to bring the other boat back north. So I can make up a bit there.
