Your post is unique in my experience and I am very curious what type boater would want to take advantage of your offer. Can you explain what kind of a person/crewman you expect to attract with this "opportunity?"
No disrespect intended but here are my numbers for your offer:
A friend operates an aluminum
65-foot Broward and reports 2 gallons per NM at 9 knots.
It is about 1,200 NM Newport
, RI to Miami
, FL on the ICW
which is 2,400 gallons of fuel - or $8,500 with a volume discount.
pays for 1/2 the fuel and two crew pay for the other half.
WHY would anyone pay approximately $2,100 (plus food) to ride along on someone else's boat?
