I agree with you. I never ask guests to pay for anything. I do suggest they bring their own lunch for a daysail, 'cuz I'm a rotten sandwich maker!
It has nothing to do with whether or not I can afford it. The boat's there, add guests, go sailing.
I also ask repeated guests to bring a CD with their favorite music
mixes. Got some great tunes from that.
I didn't charge them for it, either.
