Re: Crew expenses refused

if you guys are both from the same country, just sue them at the home jurisdiction after you get home. small claims is much easier. spend a few hundred bucks to get a lawyer to tell you how to proceed with this.

Better yet, do both. Raise whatever local stink you can and then file in Owner's/Boat's home country (handy if its yours too).

There was someone on the forum about a year ago, not Boatie, who got stiffed on a delivery, but was able to get a lien placed on the boat (which was for sale). Owner paid up pronto!

Re: Crew expenses refused

The boat owner may also have some obligations, and penalties, imposed on them by law, depending on where the boat was flagged.

How you were listed on the entry clearance papers (guest? crew? passenger?) may also affect things, as that's a formal indication versus what sounds like a verbal agreement that you made.

Re: Crew expenses refused

I tried to contact the authorities :
Police / port police / my embassy / imigration nobody was able to help me to get my tickets back (except of the embassy that offered help only if i had lost my passport)

Re: Crew expenses refused

gmahks,

"The laborer is worthy of his hire." If you contact a Marine Lawyer where you are, I believe he can get a lien placed on the vessel, so that (a) it will be forbidden to leave without discharging that debt to you, and (b) you will receive what is owed to you. I am not an expert in marine law, but I believe there is something in it that says you are due your pay for the services for which the boat owner contracted. Obviously, this needs to be done there, before you leave. I'm concerned that it will be more difficult to make come out right if you attempt it from your home country.

Well done, then. I hope you are paid the amount owed to you.
