Re: Covid 19 and Yacht Delivery
Another thought that's going to linger in the mind of delivery crew, as well as owners. No one is going to want a crew member aboard that might have been infected, understanding that some don't ever display symptoms or they are delayed 11-12 days from infection. Finding out a few days offshore that someone is sick and has infected the remainder of the crew, in such tight quarters, would be terrifying.
Point being, I think many are going to want a real cool down period, of a couple of weeks, even after no new cases are identified. That is going to squeeze the deliver season and limit many interested crew.
No doubt, there will be some who are either brave or uninformed, impossible to distinguish. The question will be how many owners are willing to put their baby in the hands of, or even recruit extra crew that may get sick a week offshore. Median number of days to symptoms is 5.
