Sorry to get away from crew pay. What I did not under stand is on a 110' why would you need a Mate? I would think 3 to 4 crew would be plenty. Captain, Deckhand, stew, and cook. (maybe cook/stew) To me a Mate is needed when you get up over 140'. I guess I under stand now, knowing Henning said his boat is meant to travel. And yes when ever we do longer non-stop trips we put on extra crew.
