Getting a job on a yacht

Here's some food for thought.* I was a line handler this weekend on a*new Leopard Catamaran being delivered from Cape Town, South Africa*to La Paz, Mexico.* The captain on the right has been working for Leopard for 6 years and does about 3 delivery's a year.* This one was budgeted for 80 days.**The women*gets paid $900.00 US plus she gets a return ticket and daily expenses.* When she finishes this delivery, she's heading to St. Maartens in the Caribbean to work for a few years on Super yachts.* She says with her* experiance, that*by walking the docks she'll get a job.* The guy in the middle,*gets nothing other than daily expenses.* He*is doing this to get the sea miles to put toward getting his Yachtmaster Offshore Certificate.* After that and more sea time he wants to be a skipper on a large yacht.* The*pay is about 10K/foot/year.**
