I would think paying crew is a charter? Does your insurance cover this? I am not against supplementing your lifestyle, but call it what it is. How legal is this where you are sailing? All these things should be known by future crew, charterers, guest, or what ever you wish to call them. If someone is to get injured? How will this be handled while aboard your vessel?.......i2f

These are legitimate questions.

Also, you say at your site:

As paying crew you are quite simply part of the crew.
To my mind, "paying crew" is a contradiction in terms. When someone pays for a trip aboard a vessel, they are usually passengers.

There are arrangements where students pay for an opportunity to gain experience aboard a vessel. A curriculum is followed, they receive training, and often awarded a certificate.

There are other arrangements where folks share expenses, but those expenses are usually pegged to the variable costs such as food, fuel, moorage etc.

But this situation seems to ask the "crew" to pay a fixed price (although I couldn't find what that might be?) for the "opportunity." Caveat emptor.

Also, since this appears to be an advertisement for a business arrangement, at a minimum we will remove the link.
