Re: Why a racer for cruising discussion...

I work in a different field. Not infrequently there is a right ( this increases the odds you will stay alive) and a wrong ( do this and it's more likely you will die). Trick is to get the person in front of you ( and we all carry our own baggage) to do the right thing and feel they own the decision. Seems like that's true for any professional who is skilled at their avocation.
Same problem with boats. We think we know what will work for us and we know what we lust after but few of us are honest enough with ourselves to recognize what we really need. Hopefully when we can't always get what we want ...we get what we need. ( sorry Mick) when directed by our peers, good friends, a porfessional or a skilled N.A.
