Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?
Fortunately I have put alot of effort into learning from other peoples mistakes, but most importantly I do learn from my own....some of the stupidest mistakes I have seen were made by people who didn't listen to other peoples suggestions, for some reason or another just not able to take advice from others....I do listen to everything people say and wiegh what they say. Example if two people tell me two conflicting things....think what would happen if I listened to one (and he was wrong) or listened to another (and he was wrong)....which of the two would put you in a compromising situation. My mind is very analytical by nature so I look closely at what people tell me...they may be right (for their application but not mine) or totally clueless or even present me with a jewel of knowledge.
