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

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.

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.

Go to the France Embassy site and look it up. Same for Cook Island tourism site.

This vessel is now in New Zealand untill March / April 2007 and will be looking for crew possibly going to Vanuatu. Unfortunately the passage to New Zealand did not clear his mind or improve his well being. He is just as abusive and ruder than previously. He is a great sailing advertisement for his country.

Also for the record I sailed To Tahiti on a American vessel in may 2006
We all entered Tahiti without posting a bond and the authorities stipulated the Captain had to pay my airfare back to New Zealand, accommodation, food, and taxi to the airport untill such time as the plane departed.

I also have been to the cook Islands and did not have to post a bond.

Tahiti to New Zealand

Unfornately your facts are wrong and you dont read the disclaimer notices on websites my fine feathered friend - particularly noonsite. I can see why the crew don't wish to carry on past Tahiti with you. As you say you get the bond back when you leave Tahiti so why don't you post the bond as all reasonable Captains do when required. I suggest you carry on past New Zealand as I don't see you being an asset to New Zealand or it's Citizens. I respectfully suggest P.N.G. Are you going to appologize for your stressfull outbust or do I get an apology by other means. A pity about the missadventure your vessel is going to encounter on route to Tahiti. I did not realize the sun was so hot in Hawaii I bet you are An American too.

All doubt is now removed. You are an ignorant ass. My boat is in Hawaii. The current crew plan to leave when I get to Tahiti.
