When he graduated boarding school in 2000 he went to sea working for the Seafarers International Union (SIU) as an Ordinary Seaman on ocean going ships. After several years of hard work and great experiences in the SIU he started working on sport fishing boats and yachts in South Florida cruising through the Bahamas, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Central and South America and eventually settled in St. Thomas, in the USVI in the Caribbean,
Gus has worked on boats, yachts, and ships for 19 years and has logged over 20,000 nautical miles at sea; he holds a US Coast Guard 200 Ton Master License.

Crew gratuity, although optional is customary at 15% - 20% of the charter rate for the Caribbean and 10% - 15% for the Mediterranean.
Advanced Provisioning Allowance:
For "Plus Expenses" charters, yachts request an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA), which is generally estimated at 20% - 25% of the base charter fee for sailing yachts (catamarans and monohulls) and at 30%-35% for motor yachts. The APA essentially creates a bank account for the Captain to purchase provisions, fuel, dockage, food, beverages, bar, and other consumables on the charterer's behalf. The Captain will keep all receipts and manage a running balance of the account, so that expenditures can be checked at any time. Any amount not used will be refunded at the end of the charter. If during the charter the costs have exceeded the collected APA, then additional funds will be required for the outstanding bills. All purchases are transparent and nothing is marked up. The APA is used purely for the charterer's provisions and charter-related expenses.
