    No doubt there are many boats where there is a master-slave relationship and worse, but there are also plenty where the owner is truly interested in the boat rahter than upstairs-downstairsness, and there is a friendly and respectful relationship between crew and owners

    I'd be interested to know what Whitefin has heard in UKSA, which by the way is staffed by very out-of-touch people with fingers miles away from the pulse (despite their bla bla claim to be training scentre for superyacht industry)

    I'm gonna give it a bash next year. Lets face it, cleaning boats when there are 6ft blonde models strolling past, then lying about owning the boat later that night to try and pull them [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] there are worse jobs!

    I know some delivery crews that do just that and manage to pull in some very nice women - they seem to have an amazing time.

    You dont even need to lie about owning the boat, and they'd know you're lying. The crew world is full of 20-something totty none of whom care that you don't own the boat. So you can have all the fun without lying :-)
