Re: Delivery Skipper - St. Maarten to Ibiza

In the interest of keeping the interwebs harmonious, I will just respond by saying good luck with your $100-a-day skipper.

Re: Delivery Skipper - St. Maarten to Ibiza

I'll add that its is nor realistic to think that a professional captain would do this delivery for less than $350 per day. If one did I would question his experience. Deckhand get 100-200 a day. You are not being realistic. -N

Re: Delivery Skipper - St. Maarten to Ibiza

DOJ brings up a really good point. Are you planning to notify the delivery skipper's tax authorities that you paid him the $100/day??

Most deliveries are for private owners who can't write off expenses on their boats, so its usually a cash deal and neither the owner or the skipper reports the money.

Note to self: Look up the bigger delivery companies based in the US and turn them in to the IRS for 10% of what they recover...

I was never on your list. I'm not even a delivery captain, just an innocent member of the forum public who's inadvertently witnessed your charms!

Or you could say that when people say you aren't being realistic, then maybe you actually aren't being realistic. You aren't being realistic.

Re: Delivery Skipper - St. Maarten to Ibiza

This forum has denigrated dramatically. People get off on jabbing, throwing barbs, putting other people down, humiliating others. It's getting tough to weed though all the crap to get to any salient points.
