Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

The paid crews are indeed the best but they are also being paid to drive someone else's boat for our amusement. Some disagree, but I say they have no choice but to accept these risks that shouldn't be imposed upon them. The engineerring of these boats is flawed. It doesnt require turning the clock back a century to fix. Further, they aren't in this conversation, I did not mock them and the use of chauffeur was metaphorical not hyperbole.

The bathtub comment was specifically directed at the "cautious sailors on here", so we'll respond to it. I'm good with that.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
