Voyage of Egret Forums

Michael Bean, Dale City, VA asks:
Subject: Crew
Thanks for all the work to but out VofE. My sugestion to
all is read both your blog and forum from the begining before asking
questions, you may allready have the answer. I'm a total Nordhavn
freak and can't wait for mine. My question is when you have a crew
member ( like ma.steve) for a long passage are they paid or do they pay you.
THanks again.. peace

Scott Flanders from Egret responds:
Michael, Egret's crew members are volunteer. We are not paid like in a charter nor do we pay them. Our routine is the crew pay their own travel expenses to and from Egret and we pay their living expenses (food) while aboard. This is a win - win situation. We get more sleep and companionship on a long passage and crew get to see and do things they might not be able to do on their own.
