That's a very good point, I would guess that more people are hurt on sailboats when in proximity to a dock, or at anchor or on a mooring, than when underway in open water...

Overall, I've been pretty fortunate - only thing I've really ever injured is my Pride, but that does seem to occur with somewhat depressing regularity... (grin)
