Re: Don't "drive" your boat like it's a car!

Skippers like the one you describe above are invaluable to the sailing community. They get tired of the repair bills and sell their scratched-up boats at a huge discount shortly after they run aground for the tenth time. This provides the savvy guy with gelcoat expertise a great way to obtain a reasonably solid, not-too-old vessel for next to nothing. The trick is to avoid being on the receiving end of him coming in to the dock.
