I know there alot of boats being run not by there owners for GBFT. I am curious (just curious, not getting in the game) what on average goes to the crew and what goes to the owner? Also who picks up the tab on a season that doesn't come out on top?

As I said before I just wonder how it works, I fish (for fun) on a friends 38 NB in Georges a few times a year and always wonder how these guys do.

Years ago I had an offer from an Famous Car Dealer in Mass that had a Pet Ass; I mean Donkey.

He offered me 10% of the catch on his little 30 ft Stick boat and only wanted me to run it 7 days a week for half the yearf!

Suckha a Deal.? C'mon Down!


if you want to fish Tuna with me here is the deal.

You front $1,000 per day and fish with me.
If we catch a fish you get 1/3rd of the fish pretax.

If we cant nothing you still get to help clean the boat.

( This is almost like a Charter trip except for the $1,000 the customers dont get to clean the boat nor do they get a 1/3 of the fish.?

I think crew get 1/3 after expenses. Tell the cap' up the canal from me to give you a better bunk or you will abandon ship ! LOL;);)

On my boat I get ALL the money and everyone works for free!:eek: Yeah right;)
