"A “passenger for hire” means a passenger for whom consideration is contributed as a condition of carriage on the vessel, whether directly or indirectly flowing to the owner, charterer, operator, agent, or any other person having an interest in the vessel."

Charitable Donation: Sailing?

Hi - I work for a Roxbury, MA nonprofit organization that offers tutoring and writing workshops for kids. We're having a fundraising event in May and looking for items we can auction. Would anyone be willing to donate an afternoon sail (or evening, or weekend) to the auction? I'm thinking the boat ought to be over 30 ft to be able to accomodate, say, six people in addition to you, the captain ...
