Justice as fairness and Distributive Justice Assignment

Imagine that you are shipwrecked at sea, floating in an open ocean with no hope of rescue. A pirate ship comes upon you and the captain offers to fish you out of the water – but only if you agree to be the ship’s cabin boy forever. The captain does not exert any other pressure. He simply makes his offer and says politely “Take it or leave it.” If you agree to the captain’s offer, are you morally bound to remain the ship’s cabin boy forever? Why or why not. Would it be morally wrong to try to escape from your bondage when the ship reaches the next port? Why or why not. What would be Rawls’ perspective on the situation? Support your observations with specific sources and examples.
