If you do, here's a vote for: of course not! When I do deliveries, either as captain

somewhere....point is, if my captaining skills are going to be judged by the weenie gear
I fetch along rather than by my experience and reputation, I probably don't want that job.
owner's confidence in a captain
should have been established before he shows up to take the boat, and micromanaging a captain by checking his gear
is an insult to his professional abilities.
I've probably opened up a whole can of worms worthy of another thread: happy to move to one if anyone cares to discuss further.
