Hi, my name is ***** ***** I can help. I have a few questions to clarify things. Does the fishing boat in question fish in international waters or part of the US territorial water? The standard per diem rates only apply to travel in the continental United States. Do you actual pay for any meals yourself or does you employer provide them free of charge as part of your employment?
