Maybe a burning dive boat sparks a crack down

This has been getting out of hand for a while. Boat should have been impounded after the first violation.

Re: Maybe a burning dive boat sparks a crack down

what exactly is the "legal" difference between running a charter and having your friends throw in for gas?

Re: Maybe a burning dive boat sparks a crack down

Passenger for Hire: means a passenger for whom consideration is contributed as a condition of carriage on the vessel, whether directly or indirectly flowing to the owner, charterer, operator, agent, or any other person having an interest in the vessel.

Consideration: means an economic benefit, inducement, right, or profit, including pecuniary payment accruing to an individual, person, or entity but not including a voluntary sharing of the actual expenses of the voyage by monetary contribution or donation of food, fuel, beverage, or other supplies.

There is a difference in running a boat for a commercial, return on investment and/or employment basis and a buddy coughing up $50 and a case of Bud Light. If you COMPEL him to, you owe him different duties under the law.
