Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...

While sailing a sail boat to a destination by wind alone is certainly possible I am not sure that it is always advisable. Not everyone has the "Captain Ron" gene in them.

I also get the sense that Jimgo is perhaps not that experienced and probably too sensible than to want to push his luck.

As Mr. Chef pointed out the currents an inlets along his route are reason enough to want to do it with a working engine.

I also prefer sailing to motoring but it is a necessary evil for most of us as well as a safety component.
