I suppose it would depend on your pals, but I think you can assume a relocation captain to be licensed and insured, have the experience and training to maximize the chance of a successful trip, and teach you about navigation, system maintenance, boat handling and so on. I belive some insurance companies prefer a new boat owner to get one on one training from a captain, so you could check that box off during your trip as well.
