It just seems that this is the norm for crew requests these days, and they rub me a little like a Go Fund Me does...

Steadman Uhlich who's a regular on this forum, crews for others on a regular basis under the terms the OP outlines which is also the way others do it. Maybe you should contact him to find out how he feels about it.

He seems to be enjoying the arrangement.

He does, and others too.
I guess what bothers me is the fundamental difference between offering to do that for someone vs asking someone to do that for you. Go Fund Me...

Re: Transatlantic from Norfolk (USA) to the Azores

Such sailing arrangements were common long before crowd funding, I see no connection.

Obviously if volunteers don't appear, offering some sort of pay for help is the next step.

If a given offer doesn't suit you, just ignore and move on to the next thread.

Morality doesn't come into what adults agree to, no harm involved and full consent.

"Oh I wish the world were different" is of limited value

I thought it would be cheaper because of the big US base there..
