Most charter boat captains I know earn a pittance and get most of their income from tips. The charter companies know there are 20 people waiting in the wings for the job if you don't like the pay.

I keep an eye on this forum as I hope to join the ranks of the working cruisers one day.
I think I'll be one that does not work. Working is just too much like work.
